Blockchain is Not

Inherently Secure

Blockchain and Digital Ledger Technology (DLT) provide a foundation for disruptive innovation across all sectors and industries. Its success, however, likely depends on whether security is assured at all stages of the solution lifecycle.

While records on a blockchain are well protected through cryptography, the code and cryptography underpinning blockchain architectures are often complex, with undiscovered flaws.  For many projects, security has taken a back seat as enterprises or inventors rush to become first to market. Flaws in the design or implementation of blockchain networks leave them open to exploitation. Passwords and keys can be appropriated and misused. The distributed nature of infrastructure, clouds, and trust relationships have been exploited.

Kudelski Security empowers enterprise adopters to build security and encryption into their blockchain solutions from the start, making integration of highly secure components seamless and straightforward. With over three decades of cryptography expertise, and some of the world’s foremost blockchain thought leaders, we will help you succeed at every stage of your blockchain implementation — from inception and design to architecture review and training.

  • 5 Things You Can Do Right Now to Improve Office 365 Security
    by Francisco Donoso on September 16, 2020 at 11:30 pm

    The Microsoft Office 365 productivity suite counts around 200 million active users per month, making it an incredibly attractive target for cybercriminals. In fact, 85% of security incidents investigated by the Kudelski Security Incident Response team in 2019 can be attributed to an Office 365 email compromise. Of course, email isn’t the only asset at

  • Evolution to Becoming a Modern Day CISO
    by Jason Hicks on September 15, 2020 at 6:00 pm

    Today’s top CISOs come from many different backgrounds: some have held more technical roles and decided to switch gears and learn the art of business, while others came from a strong compliance and policy background and were inspired by the machinations of security. Whatever their origin, each CISO has its own blend of qualifications, experience,

  • Beyond Security: Creating a Shared Vision for Flexible Cloud Governance
    by Bo Lane on September 9, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    Cybersecurity organizations should partner with business units to create a shared and flexible cloud governance model that better enables responsible cloud adoption. Businesses cannot (and often will not) wait for security organizations to create inflexible governance frameworks for cloud adoption. After all, the cloud is supposed to be flexible and business-enabling. The high-speed transformation to

  • Return-to-work: Best Practices for Implementing Proximity Tracing to Reduce Workplace Risk
    by Ron Frederick on August 26, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    Contract tracing is especially top of mind given the global challenges surrounding COVID-19, and, in some cases, it’s a requirement as organizations begin re-opening their doors to employees and customers. Analyzing location-based data from network-connected devices or Bluetooth and mobile application signals can significantly reduce workplace risk and enable a safe return to work. We

  • Recruiting the Future of Security: Finding Future CISOs
    by Jason Hicks on August 21, 2020 at 3:00 pm

    It is no secret that finding and recruiting strong Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) candidates is far from easy. Many CISOs typically stay in a role for a few years and subsequently are not able to dedicate adequate time to the development of junior leaders who could become the next wave of security leaders. Most organizations
