Ukraine will host a round table discussion to come up with practical ways to tackle cybercrime around cryptocurrencies. The CryptoExchange Round Table will be held in Kiev on October 11 and will be a part of the yearly HackIT 4.0 Forum. The meet up will bring together industry professionals and security experts in order to share opinions.
Background Of The CryptoExchange Round Table
One of the major issues facing crypto trading is cyber security which is a complex issue. Without the corporation of the various stake holders involved in the trade, the issue of cybercrime may cripple cryptocurrencies even before they get off the ground. It’s therefore important to have a discussion on the pertinent issues surrounding cyber security and in the process gain public attention. The team hopes that they will come up with a standard agreement that will be signed by the various industry players involved
The topics for discussion have been divided into 3 parts; business, technical and the legal issues. On the business agenda, items to be discussed include proper operational security, blockchain nodes and databases, front end servers as well as personal cyber security of employees. The technical agenda will tackle issues to do with security standardization, security requirements for smart contracts and blockchain protocols.
There will also be a discussion on legal and governance issues that include the work approaches that will cut across the board in terms of compliance versus non-compliance. There will also be an analysis of the approaches that will prevail in the market in the coming five years.
About HackIT 4.0
The event is the 4th Global Cybersecurity forum that involves cybersecurity specialists, blockchain enthusiasts and clean hackers. HackIT has been held in Ukraine since 2015 with the aim of becoming an influencer in issues to do with security especially on the web.
