Blockchain technology can enable more money to reach beneficiaries faster by increasing system efficiency whilst providing a digital solution that enables participants to validate transactions without traditional intermediaries.
I had been traveling and juggling multiple things at once, including jet-lag, when I finally decided to give some time to understand the situation with Ian Balina. I’ve seen several articles about his recent security breach and have caught up on his telegram and twitter mention describing the incident. As I’m reading all the information I’m recognizing a familiar situation that can happen to many of us at any given time. Pay attention and listen close because you are not far off from being the next victim.

As a #cybersecurity expert I have been toying with the idea of providing educational articles/posts geared towards individual safety in the digital space.

Women are better represented in areas such as finance, strategy, sales and marketing. More of these roles will occur as the segment develops, presenting excellent opportunities for women.
This week I had the chance to speak with Dr Jane Thomason, a global leader driving the application of blockchain technology for social impact. Global Ambassador for the British Blockchain Association and CEO of ABT Associates, a global consultancy of “bold thinkers driving real-world impact”, Dr Thomason is working with the UN and other organisations to drive economic and social inclusion for the world’s most vulnerable. A great female voice in the blockchain space.
