Blockchain For Identity Authentication Infrastructure

Mutual distributed ledger (MDL) identity schemes could empower people with personal data storage and management, permission frameworks for access by third parties such as banks insurers or governments, and even distributed reputation ratings.

Such applications could reduce financial fraud, costs, and crime, and increase returns, confidence, and security. MDLs are uniquely supportive of controlled distribution and sharing of digitally-signed documentation and could form the backbone to identity and authentication systems worldwide. In fact, some claim that identity authentication infrastructure is the ‘killer app’ for MDLs rather than payments.

While anti-money-laundering/know-your-customer/ultimate-beneficial-ownership processes are arduous for high-net-worth individuals, about 2.4 billion poor people worldwide lack official identification, about 1.5 billion over the age of 14.

This webinar will examine how MDLs might aid both rich and poor.

  • Security on a Shoestring Oct 14 2021 1:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Ashwin Pal | Director Cybersecurity | Unisys Asia Pacific
    It is now widely known that SMBs are a key target for cyber criminals. They are now seen as the ‘low hanging fruit’ as SMBs generally cannot afford the same investment in cyber security initiatives when compared to larger firms. Unfortunately, as far as the cyber criminals are concerned, anyone on the internet is fair game. Unlike their larger counterparts, a cyber attack on an SMB can be very debilitating and can even cause the business to shut down. SMBs face their own unique challenges when it comes to defending against cyber-attacks. Within this presentation, you will hear about how the Invictus Games in Sydney in 2019 was secured using minimal funding and time as a case study. We will then explore some of the unique challenges faced by SMBs when it comes to cyber security. We will look at how focusing on your core business and risk management helps direct efforts to the right places in a cost effective manner. We will then explore what a typical attack looks like and discuss the basics that need to be covered to provide an SMB with an ability to defend itself from cyber-attacks while avoiding overspend.

  • Federated Learning and Preserving Data Privacy Jun 23 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Eric Topham, The Data Analysis Bureau | Dr. Pedro Baiz, Imperial College London | Max Robbins, AI Market
    Businesses rely on AI models that transform data into actionable insights. Traditional methods for creating AI models require a lot of data that is collected at some central location. Federated Learning (FL), however, takes a different approach by turning the centralised paradigm on its head and moving models or functions to be executed to where the data is.

    As a distributed process that does not require a single depository of data and where different parties can train an AI model without having to share the data, FL can be used in situations where data privacy is paramount.

    This paradigm shift is also creating new opportunities to democratize AI, which has the potential to transform the data economy.

    Join this month's episode of the Business Intelligence Report with Eric Topham, Co-Founder & Data Science Director at The Data Analysis Bureau, to learn more about how FL works and what opportunities it creates for consumers and enterprises.

    Viewers will also hear from the experts about the different use cases for federated learning, especially in the context of customer privacy, regulatory compliance, and integrating siloed data. The topics up for discussion will include:
    - The emergence of FL
    - FL, the democratization of data and what this means for Big Tech
    - How FL can be used as a privacy-preserving technology
    - Business use cases for FL
    - How FL can be part of your data strategy

    Speakers
    - Dr. Pedro Baiz, Royal Society Entrepreneur in Residence, AESE: Adaptive Emergent Systems Engineering Group, Department of Computing at Imperial College London
    - Max Robbins, CEO of AI Market

  • Zero Trust for the New Normal Jun 16 2021 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Diana Kelley, SecurityCurve | Mari Galloway, Women's Society of Cyberjutsu | Jonathan Nguyen Duy, Fortinet
    Working remotely has become the new normal. This, and many other changes organizations adopted last year in response to the pandemic are likely to stay for the long term. According to Gallup, about two-thirds of U.S. remote workers want to continue to work remotely. So, how can organizations continue to support their growing distributed workforce at a time where reports of security threats have increased by 400% compared to pre-pandemic levels? 

    Here is where the zero-trust approach to security comes into play. 

    Join this month's episode of The (Security) Balancing Act with Diana Kelley and guests as they discuss the emergence of zero trust (“Trust Nothing, Verify Everything”) and what it helps achieve for enterprises in the age of cloud and remote work.

    Viewers will learn about:
    - The evolution of the security perimeter and the shift to zero trust
    - Why zero trust is an approach and not a product
    - Zero Trust Network Access (ZTA) vs. corporate VPN
    - Real-world stories and practical hands-on guidance from people who have deployed a ZTA

    Speakers:
    - Mari Galloway, CEO, Women's Society of Cyberjutsu

  • Ransomware in the Remote Work Era Recorded: May 12 2021 61 mins
    Diana Kelley, SecurityCurve | Nicole Hoffman, GroupSense | Courtney Radke, Fortinet | Patrick Lee, Rapid7
    Phishing and ransomware attacks continue to rise, according to Proofpoint’s State of the Phish report for 2020. Organizations in the U.S. are at risk, the increase in remote work due to the pandemic has fueled a spike in attacks, and phishing attempts are up by 14 percent compared to the previous year.

    Email continues to be the number 1 delivery vehicle, but other social engineering schemes that rely on social media, voicemail (“vishing"), SMS phishing (“smishing”), and malicious USB drops are also of concern for organizations. Ransom demands are also on the rise, but according to the report, paying the ransom is not guaranteed to work as many companies that paid the ransom failed to receive a decryption key.

    Join this month's episode of The (Security) Balancing Act as Diana Kelley and guests discuss why ransomware is surging again, which sectors are most at risk, the threat to enterprises and how it is being used for more than just ransom (ex: distractionware, destructionware, etc).
    - The rise in ransomware under the cloak of the pandemic
    - Why email continues to be the channel of choice
    - The difference between fully automated and human-operated campaigns
    - How to decide whether or not to pay or not to pay the ransom
    - Why your backups may not be immune to ransomware
    - Addressing the threat with best practices
