Attorneys from Crowell & Moring’s Government Contracts and Blockchain & Digital Assets Groups join industry experts from IBM Watson Health and Yugen Partners for an informative and engaging discussion about blockchain, what it is and how it works. In particular, this program explores the use of blockchain in the supply chain context for mitigating risks and creating efficiencies.
The discussion begins with an overview of the risks associated with supply chains, particularly those involving data authenticity and security, and then, through case studies from the food, automobile, and shipping industries, and in the context of government contracts, addresses how Blockchain can be used to mitigate such risks, as well as improve transparency and reduce costs. The discussion concludes with an update on the status of blockchain in the regulatory arena and some tips on how to prepare for incorporating blockchain into your company’s operations.
At the end of this session, participants will have a better understanding of:
- The risks associated with supply chains, including data authenticity and security;
- The basic way in which blockchain works and how it can mitigate the risks associated with supply chains;
- How blockchain improves transparency in, and may reduce costs associated with, supply chains;
- How blockchain can be used to limit disclosure to relevant data and designated individuals; and
- How to prepare for effectively incorporating blockchain into your company’s operations.
