Blockchain Technology: The Pathway for Tomorrow's Trusted Supply Chains

Date:   Oct 25, 2017 - Oct 25, 2017
Time:   12:00 PM

Recent advances in technology are transforming industries and professions, from banking to supply chain.  Blockchain is one of the key disruptors.  It is the technology behind the cryptocurrency bitcoin but entirely separate from its financial applications, it presents tremendous opportunities – and new challenges – to traditional business models in almost every sector.  It has the potential to completely reorganize global supply chains, allow for far better traceability and accountability, and streamline operations.  Far from science fiction, blockchain is quickly gaining mainstream momentum.

Mislabeled seafood has become such a prevalent practice that it threatens to compromise the integrity of the entire seafood market. Victims of supply chain fraud aren't only consumers, but also retailers who trust a supply chain riddled with misleading practices. This not only holds true for seafood but is the case in a variety of industries where global supply chains are at play.

This webinar will introduce the technology and focus on issues and impacts in global supply chain management, security issues, types of blockchain protocols, and much more.

 Topics discussed during this session:

  • Issues in global supply chain management
  • Security issues current with IT system architecture
  • High level introduction to blockchain technologies
  • Types of blockchain protocols (public/private)
  • Introduction to Proof of Process Protocol
  • Properties for a secure shared system in the context of supply chains
  • Bureau Veritas supply chain traceability proof of concept
  • How blockchain networks will help the supply chain manager
  • Q&A
