As a revolutionary technology, Blockchain provides a practical solution to
enable a secure and decentralized public ledger that a huge plethora of
exciting new technology applications in several areas, such as the Internet
of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems, Manufacturing, Supply-Chain, etc.
Blockchain technology has infiltrated all areas of our lives, from
manufacturing to healthcare and beyond. Cybersecurity is an industry that
has been significantly affected by this technology and maybe more so in the
future. Blockchain Technology is defined as a decentralized system of
distributed registers that are used to record data transactions on multiple
computers. The reason this technology has gained popularity is that you can
put any digital asset or transaction in the blocking chain, the industry
does not matter. Blockchain technology can be used to prevent any data
breach, identity theft, cyber-attacks or criminal acts in transactions.
This ensures that data remains private and secure. The main goal of this
workshop is to encourage both researchers and practitioners to share and
exchange their experiences and recent studies between academia and industry
in the Blockchain field.
