Blockchain & AI:  The Next Gen Battleground for CyberSecurity

With the onslaught of IoT and the growing reliance on AI-driven processes, networks and machines, cybersecurity is a critical concern.  Enter blockchain, a distributed ledger that allows for public, decentralized transactions without the need for third-party intervention. Since the interaction is public, blockchain technology is often described not just as ‘reliable’, but also as ‘incorruptible infrastructure’.  Is blockchain the next battleground arena for preventing cyber attacks? What are the latest developments and deployment timelines? This roundtable will explore network security, blockchain and AI developments, opportunities and what we can expect in the year ahead.
