The Boundaries are Unclear, Great Enterprises are Not

Blockchain and related technologies have already begun to revolutionize the ways in which users can organize data, value (ownership) and processes. But the corresponding regulatory and technological boundaries remain largely unsettled. Even the practical difference between centralized and decentralized finance beg to be universally defined. The reality is that it may take another decade to set clear boundaries for the playing field to a level befitting enterprise standards. Meanwhile, enterprise decision-makers face tremendous pressures to take advantage of – what is now widely accepted as – the unstoppable, inevitable changes sweeping across industries – with enterprise blockchains and related technologies; or else pay the very real opportunity costs of falling behind their blockchain-adopting competitors. The bottom line is that the technology and regulations could persist without clear direction for some time, but great enterprises cannot.

We empower enterprise leaders with clear direction – backed by world-leading expertise – to take decisive action and lead in blockchain, crypto, DeFi, web3 and related technology initiatives.

How Does “Crypto Security” Differ From “Cybersecurity”?


Cybersecurity refers to the classical practices formulated from the 1970s onward to protect computer systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks – such as malware, viruses, phishing, backdoor, and other attacks. These approaches and technologies were formulated before the diffusion of new, cryptography-based emerging technologies (blockchain, cryptocurrencies and more) and solutions.

Crypto Security is a term that the industry has reclaimed (beyond its archaic uses in early military and communications technology vernacular) to describe the cybersecurity practices that extend into cryptography-based decentralization technologies such as distributed ledger technologies, blockchain, cross-chains networks, and their uses for DeFi, smart contracts, crypto assets and web3 – technologies that attract crypto-specific risks that cannot be mitigated by “traditional” cybersecurity controls alone.
