Session ID: 

Blockchain Privacy, Security, Compliance and Regulation

10:00am - 11:00am Wednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Blockchains show great potential to help healthcare reduce costs, and improve patient engagement, experience, and outcomes. Privacy expectations and risks must be successfully managed to enable healthcare to fully realize the benefits of blockchain. Concurrently, blockchains hold incredible potential to put patients and data subjects in control of their data and improve privacy. A myriad of regulations and data protection laws apply to blockchains, and must be complied with to avoid non-compliance, penalties, and other impacts. The challenges of compliance are exacerbated by the fact that blockchains can span states, countries, and regions that represent different jurisdictions with different regulations and data protection laws, and data sovereignty and trans-border data flow requirements and challenges can also emerge as blockchains grow globally.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Discover what security blockchain provides, and what remains that you need to take care of in order to successfully mitigate risks of breaches, ransomware, DDoS, and other security incidents
  • Analyze new security risks from connecting multiple healthcare organizations across a blockchain consortium, and how to mitigate these risks
  • Identify privacy risks with blockchain that must be mitigated, and how can blockchains can help improve privacy
  • Review HIPAA, GDPR and other regulatory and data protection law compliance requirements for blockchains, and how to implement blockchain and achieve compliance
  • Explore opportunities to advance AI for cybersecurity using blockchain
