Blockchain for Security & Privacy


Special Committee on Privacy and Security

One of the most critical and challenging issues of the technological era is protection of private and sensitive data and physical computing assets. IEEE is exploring the use of blockchain distributed ledger applications to implement global privacy and security solutions. The use of blockchains to integrate these goals will revolutionize privacy and security, and enable practices to be uniformly distributed and applied across different organizations, applications, and industries. Potential benefits include the ability to individualize privacy controls for data creators, to create uniform security controls for distributed physical and digital assets, to appropriately balance data privacy and transparency, and to manage logistics for audit and compliance with regulations such as GDPR.

The IEEE Blockchain Initiative will address this rapidly evolving area to leverage the momentum in existing community projects, and efforts started by socially-responsible legislation and regulations.

Through podcasts, virtual keynotes, and industry forums, digitally-curated poster competitions, globally-connected collaborations on standards, and publications, the Initiative will deliver actionable discussions concerning all aspects of security and privacy. This forum will support and contribute to community development and public working groups worldwide to implement forward-looking prototypes, proof-of-concept platforms, and actionable recommendations.
