Abstract: Since Blockchain solves everything from logistics to legal file storage, from cancer to liverspo...wait, that’s snake oil!! 


Blockchain is an interesting technology, worthy and appropriate for use in certain situations. Not all situations and use cases are a good idea to use blockchain with, however.


In this talk, we’re going to discuss the best uses of blockchain, the legitimate and silly uses of it in compliance and risk management, and as a fun aside, how to audit the use of blockchain systems properly.


This is not an exhaustive technical talk, but a familiarization on the topic, and a discussion of use cases and audit protocols in a specific type of industry system, I.e., risk management, compliance, and governance. (GRC, for anyone reading backwards!)


Blockchain will be brought to you as a technology you should implement NOW!!! Learn when and how to say "No."
