Blockchain digital technology is gaining traction nowadays in different industrial domains such as healthcare, manufacturing, finance, energy, private and public services. However, blockchain raises many security challenges. We will discuss these challenges and assess the related security practices showing the potential security risks, threats, and vulnerabilities.

The programme will also compare the security assessment approaches methodologies used in centralized and decentralized platforms. For example, the program will discuss the distributed ledger technology (DLT) evolution and how it may impact the security and privacy postures for private and public sectors. Moreover, the course will provide blockchain maturity assessment in the scope of the CIA triad information security model (i.e., confidentiality, integrity, and availability).

You will also learn the dark side of blockchain and more specifically the use of cryptocurrency in economic digital crimes. The participants will understand how cyber criminals develop blockchain apps (e.g., dark wallet and bitcoins) to engage in illicit activities such as digital identity theft and Cyber laundering which has significant adverse repercussions on the European economy. Also, you will gain insights into how blockchain helps companies in improving value creation and revenues. The course will also pinpoint the limitation of blockchain technology from security and scalability perspectives.
