Blockchain Security Workshop


Many organizations are now considering blockchain security because blockchain technology produces a structure of data with inherent security qualities.

According to security professionals, businesses can more securely store and transfer records using blockchain networks with strong, built-in encryption. This can sometimes be a cheaper way to store data rather than renting space in a data center.

For example, blockchain can be used to securely share electronic health records. Since the data in blockchain is encrypted and private key codes are needed to access the data, these records would be shared among patients and providers safely.

Blockchain security has also proven to be useful in supply chain management. Supply chains are complex and managing them takes hours upon hours of time from businesses and their teams, especially when different links in the chain are in different states or countries.

A blockchain’s immutable record-holding technology solves many issues associated with supply chain management by eliminating the lack of transparency and inefficiencies in payment processes

Blockchain security is based on principles of cryptography, decentralization and consensus, which ensure trust in transactions. In most blockchains or distributed ledger technologies (DLT), the data is structured into blocks and each block contains a transaction or bundle of transactions.

Each new block connects to all the blocks before it in a cryptographic chain in such a way that it’s nearly impossible to tamper with. All transactions within the blocks are validated and agreed upon by a consensus mechanism, ensuring that each transaction is true and correct.

Blockchain security enables decentralization through the participation of members across a distributed network. There is no single point of failure and a single user cannot change the record of transactions.

Blockchain security professionals believe that when organizations are building an enterprise blockchain application, it’s important to consider security at all layers of the technology stack, and how to manage governance and permissions for the network.

When building a blockchain application, it’s critical for organizations to assess which type of network will best suit their business goals. Private and permissioned networks can be tightly controlled and preferable for compliance and regulatory reasons.

However, public and permissionless networks can achieve greater decentralization and distribution.

A key to successfully establishing blockchain security is for organizations to employ experts to help you design a compliant and secure solution and help you achieve your business goals.

Look for a production-grade platform for building blockchain solutions that can be deployed in the technology environment of your choosing, whether that is on-premises or your preferred cloud vendor.

Blockchain Security Workshop by Tonex

Blockchain Security Workshop is a 2-day training program focusing on Blockchain security. Participants will learn how to use a comprehensive risk management framework and system applied to  blockchain network.

Blockchain is a Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) to create trust in an untrusting ecosystem. All nodes or members can record, pass along and view any transactional data that is encrypted onto their blockchain. Using cybersecurity frameworks, assurance services and best practices, we can reduce risks against attacks and fraud.

Blockchain technology enables decentralization, with the participation of members and nodes across a distributed network. Blockchain technologies differ in some critical security aspects.

Networks are typically either public or private, depending on participation. permissioned or permissionless, or how the participants gain access to the network.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for analysts, programmers, application developers, network engineers, hardware and software design engineers, managers, and employees with little or no blockchain security experience. The course is also useful for those who have experience with blockchain security but have never had any formal training on the standard.
