About this Event
The rapidly growing US $1.75 trillion cryptocurrency industry has become a prime target for cybercriminals, with an average of more than US $2.5M in digital value stolen from exchanges each day. As the price of Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies has skyrocketed, the sophistication of criminal attacks has likewise increased, with large operations that typically target banks shifting to digital finance, including exchanges, ICOs and mining pools. How can investors and exchanges defend against the growing risk of threats like ransomware and phishing? The Canadian Blockchain Consortium is bringing together top experts in blockchain security for a special webinar on cyber defence and best practices.
