More than just the system behind Bitcoin, blockchain is a new technology that has the potential to change the financial industry and beyond. But what is it, really? And what should you be aware of when looking to implement blockchain technology into your organization? This talk will cover the fundamentals of how blockchains work, newer implementations and variations on the original Bitcoin specification, and finally, the security implications inherent in the technology. Both vulnerabilities and mitigations will be covered, as well as developing methods to audit the security of any blockchain implementation. Whether you are building the next blockchain technology or looking to implement blockchain into your organization, this talk will leave you with the fundamental knowledge you need to do so securely.

As a Senior Security Researcher at Security Compass, Aaron Hnatiw is constantly looking into the future to find ways to better secure the technologies of tomorrow. Whether that's blockchain technology, machine learning/artificial intelligence, or virtual reality, he's always working on something new and bleeding edge. His past lives have included such fun and exciting careers as: security consultant, system administrator, software developer, and college professor. In his spare time, Aaron enjoys writing security tools and contributing to the open source software ecosystem.
