Blockchain Crypto SOC
This article concludes our four-part series on the basic differences between traditional IT security and blockchain security. Previous articles discussed the security differences critical for node operators, smart contract developers, and end users. In many ways, Security Operations Center (SOC) analysts and node operators face similar blockchain-related security challenges. The scale of SOC operations brings...
Blockchain User Security
This article is the third in a four-part series exploring the differences between traditional IT security and blockchain security.  Check out the first two articles in the series exploring the differences for node operators and application developers. This article explores how user security differs between traditional IT and blockchain environments.  While identical products and services...

Smart Contract Supply Chain Security
Code reuse is considered best practice in software engineering.  Reusing high-quality, secure code can speed development processes and often results in higher-quality code than software developed entirely from scratch.  Additionally, the reuse of high-quality, audited libraries reduces security risks by decreasing the probability that new vulnerabilities will creep into the code base. In open source...
Nomad Bridge Hack
One attacker and hundreds of copycats looted the Nomad bridge for over $190 million; few did the right thing. Decentralization is a hot-button topic in 2022.
