Blockchain and security rr

Jakub Jedlinský
The paper deals with the issue of security of distributed ledger technologies (DLT), focusing on the blockchain. In the first part, it assesses the not well studied topic, namely the role of trust in these DLTs. It does so from a broader systemic perspective. DLTs are referred to as a trustless solution, which is misleading, at best. The second part is devoted to the issue of new security challenges that users themselves have to deal with.

Holistic approach to cyber security rr

Miroslav Nečas
Cyber security can no longer be viewed just as an ICT issue. Instead, it must be approached holistically. This means perceiving cyber security in the context of fulfilling the organisation’s mission and maintaining its competitiveness, requiring a strengthening interdisciplinary communication within the company and the ability to link information from the ICT infrastructure with information from other internal and external sources. This can be efficiently implemented using a platform that consolidates information from SIEM systems, competitive intelligence, production systems, asset management systems and other information sources.
