Network security threats are a growing complex problem!
Individuals and entities of all sizes across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) are suffering wide ranging consequences from on-going network security breaches. Irrespective of nations, no individual or entity is spared from security breach and if 2016 is any indication, there is no relief in sight as the security threats are getting almost impossible to manage.
As the security threats facing computer networks are becoming hi-tech and more complicated technologically, they are getting harder to detect and trickier to manage. Thus, the consequences of failing to not only block cyber-attacks but effectively manage the cyber-security risks is getting complex, costly and catastrophic.
Amidst the growing complex security challenges, there are many who sees the solution in the promise of blockchain in securing the computer networks for individuals and entities across NGIOA. There is a growing belief that the blockchain technology that conducts and secures transactions on the cryptocurrency network like Bitcoin—can be effectively used to secure any computer network—and thereby securely storing and transferring any kind of digital information on the internet. Since the information going through any blockchain network is kind of hidden to unauthorized users, it means that the Block chain technology could essentially provide a way to secure, a way to track, a way to protect each computer network that is using blockchain technology.
The advances and applications of blockchain technology are convincingly responding to some of the complex security challenges of not only the likes of fast-evolving Internet of Things (IoT) industry, or the complex challenges facing the financial industry, but most of the independent and interdependent security risks originating independently and collectively from cyberspace, geospace and space.
While blockchain brings great promise and potential, time will tell whether blockchain will become a new operating system for cyber- security, network security and supply chain operating networks.
Time is now to talk about network security risks!
