We think of Blockchain as synonymous with Security. Yet, every day we hear of another Crypto exchange being hacked, with eye-watering amounts of cryptocurrency stolen. This session will look at why this false perception exists and how cryptocurrency is not as secure as you might think. Complete with a live hacking demo of how you can steal cryptocurrency, we will show you the processes that can be used to protect crypto assets.
- The decentralized nature of Blockchain doesn't automatically make it secure.
- Cryptocurrency exchanges are vulnerable to attack, leading to distrust of blockchain technology as a whole.
- Security processes to protect crypto assets must be implemented, or the consequences will be dire.
