Learning something new

Crypto-currency and blockchain technology

Blockchain technology was invented by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009. It is a staggeringly simple means of storing and sharing value securely and universally without the need for a central authority. Blockchain technology can be used for a myriad of applications beyond transferring tokens such as Bitcoin. It will have just as much impact on the world as the Internet has had in the past 20 years.

Delving deeper


I’ve been doing security-related work in the field of e-commerce for close to 20 years helping clients with fraud prevention, forensic analysis and social media security for close to my entire career in Web. But the landscape is rapidly changing and one needs to keep up. On the horizon? Threats related to cloud hosting of sensitive material, insecure products of ‘The-internet-of-things’ and the relentless attacks on my favorite platform WordPress.
