Blockchain and Transatlantic Security – Challenges and Opportunities of Blockchain Beyond Bitcoin
17. Oktober 2019 — 19:00 Uhr
Amerikahaus München, Barer Str. 19a, 80333 München
(Die Veranstaltung findet in englischer Sprache statt.)
While Bitcoin is currently in a downward spiral, the technology behind it – distributed ledger technology, commonly referred to as blockchain – might prove of critical importance when it comes to the military and economic security of the transatlantic world. Blockchain in the context of national security operates on issues such as questions of border security, national integrity, energy security, cyber security, or counterterrorism. As e.g. Foreign Policy Magazine stated in 2018, blockchain technology can be of vital importance in strengthening national and international security strategies and infrastructures in these contexts.
In this panel discussion we will bring together various experts on the blockchain technology and discuss the current and future challenges for national security policies in the Western world.
- Prof. Dr. Haya Shulman, Director Cybersecurity Analytics and Defences at the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT
- Prof. Dr. Roman Beck, Head of European Blockchain Center, University of Copenhagen
- Salomé Eggler, Political Advisor, Digitalisation and Human Rights, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit
- and others
