by Jonathan Care  |  August 30, 2016  |  Submit a Comment

In response to some significant client demand, David Anthony Madhi and I have written a note giving our thoughts on the emerging blockchain technologies, and answer some of the questions we’ve seen posed by well-informed CISOs. To whet your appetite a little, here’s the summary:

Blockchain has the potential to become a significant trust enabler in the CISO’s arsenal. However, solutions are unclear, standards have yet to coalesce and regulation is far on the horizon. CISOs must make informed technology decisions that align with the organization’s risk appetite and tolerance.

This is an exciting area that has promise to revolutionize trust management across industry sectors. We look forward to seeing how things develop!
