About her Talk : Enterprise Blockchain: Finding Trust and Security in the Chain
If Blockchain, the distributed ledger (DLT) underlying bitcoin is “the new black”, then it is time to ask: is it secure? We know it is more valuable than the currency it supports and enterprises have already started to put distributed ledger technology into practice. However, it’s also important to understand the security implications for the industry and how blockchain potentially impacts transparency and trust. In this inspirational keynote, we’ll explore the advantages of public vs. private blockchains and highlight some innovative lessons learned from enterprises successfully employing real-world blockchain solutions. By the end of the talk, attendees will understand the ecosystem of The Linux Foundation, Hyperledger and the importance of Open Source for Enterprises.
