Clearly the world is going blockchain. There are so many indicators. For example, the value of the bitcoin and other cryptocurrency blockchains grew from zero in 2009 to $1 billion four years later. The next four years they exploded to over $140 Billion. The volume of Google searches for the term “blockchain” is 100 times what it was in 2013. And, the latest estimates are that more than half of the companies in the world with over 20,000 employees are working on blockchain research, development and deployment. Of those, two-thirds plan to deploy blockchain solutions in 2018. Blockchain technology could potentially impact every transaction involving the transfer of money, property or information. This includes financial transactions, all supply chains, and data feeds. This technology will integrate with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to change the very paradigm of how we interact with people, institutions and technology.

The questions for security professionals is how does this impact our ability to secure our assets and information. This presentation will provide an introductory view into what blockchain technology is and how it will impact the security domain.

We created this report to assist governments in exploiting the next era of technology in their own operations, within their economies and society, and with their allies and global partners. The Blockchain Research Institute produced it in collaboration with the Washington DC based Chamber of Digital Commerce and a group of experts from several countries. To make the report more concrete, we chose to focus on the opportunities and challenges facing the new administration in the United States as an exemplar of what government could do.

Presented at the GBA Government Blockchain Leadership Forum in May 2018.

This presentation described how blockchain can help address the following conditions:
1) 62% of insured adults rely on their doctors to manage their health records
2) 29% keep them in a file drawer or even a shoebox
3) Over 300 different EHR systems in use today,
4) 3 different IT systems of record for every encounter
5) On average we see 18.7 different doctors in our lifetime
6) Little to no communication among systems
7) Our medical records are scattered across many different types of systems controlled by many different IT departments and behind many different firewalls (no one has a holistic view of your health)

This presentation describes the Global Blockchain Association (GBA) and specifically describes how governments can engage with the GBA.

This powerpoint presentation describes how standard blockchain work and focusses on the hashing function and why that is important to time and date stamping. This is explained in terms of validating the authenticity of original works and how it is used to validate proof of ownership. It also includes examples of blockchain based solutions that are commercially available.
