RMF and Blockchain, not so perfect together!

February 23 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

NEW LOCATION: Marymount University Ballston Center, 1000 N. Glebe Road, Arlington, Virginia. Go to lobby and take elevator to 2nd Floor. Turn to your left to another elevator to Room 4032.

Since Blockchain solves everything from logistics to legal file storage, from cancer to liverspo…wait, that’s snake oil!!

Blockchain is an interesting technology, worthy and appropriate for use in certain situations. Not all situations and use cases are a good idea to use blockchain with, however. In this talk, we’re going to discuss the best uses of blockchain, the legitimate and silly uses of it in compliance and risk management, and as a fun aside, how to audit the use of blockchain systems properly.

This is not an exhaustive technical talk, but a familiarization on the topic, and a discussion of use cases and audit protocols in a specific type of industry system, I.e., risk management, compliance, and governance. (GRC, for anyone reading backwards!)

Blockchain will be brought to you as a technology you should implement NOW!!! Learn when and how to say “No.”

Besides earning Professional Development Units (PDUs) for participating our RMF LifeBoat ISSA Education Group meeting, we all receive the encouragement and help we need for our cyber security professional growth. The friendly interactive presentations by our members of the meetup always lead to lively respectful discussions. Members always take away information that they that can be applied on the job in the following weeks! In additional our LifeBoat group meetings provide opportunities for the all-important professional networking. If you have a vexing problem, share with like-minded security professionals. They may have already successfully developed a way forward to resolve it.
