This webinar will focus on the significance of blockchain from an enterprise perspective. Firstly, we will explore ongoing research within the telecoms industry to build a blockchain for number management. This will demonstrate some of the key characteristics of good blockchain applications and the challenges faced in implementing.
Secondly, we will explore the security concerns around blockchain including homeostasis of private ecosystems as well as the impact of cryptocurrencies for business. We demonstrate the use of novel techniques in the forensic investigation of dark web sales.
We conclude with a look at the future opportunities for distributed ledger technology for enterprise and the steps needed to ensure the reliability of future systems.
This webinar is intended for everyone with an interest in blockchain technology. An understanding of blockchain would be useful but is not required.
