FMI Manitoba Presents:
BLOCKCHAIN 101: BEYOND BITCOIN!

Blockchain, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, what does it all mean? As the world of technology has massively changed over the last decade, emerging technologies are penetrating many industries as we know them today. The successful adoption of blockchain technology and the benefits it promises to deliver can help organizations build stronger trust and relationships with their consumers. In the public sector specifically, blockchain technology is a prime candidate for many multi-stakeholder use cases, ranging from land registry, voting, identity management, notarization, secure health data and many 'smart city' initiatives. However, the added transparency and complexity of adopting blockchain technology can drastically impact how organizations operate, and translates to an increase in risk and vulnerability that they may be exposed to.

In this session, we will dive into the core concepts of blockchain technology to explore and discuss how these technologies are transforming the way we work. This session will provide you with a view on the increasing challenges and risks that organizations should be ready to face, and practical steps that you can consider before investing in new technology in order to minimize and manage the risk of failure.
