TDL One-day Conference: Multiple Views on Blockchain: Technology, Use Cases, Economics, and Policies

TDL’s  one-day conference, in partnership with the Hague Security Delta and the Institute for Financial Crime (IFFC) was held on 17 June in The Hague.  The objective was to bring together researchers, practitioners, and regulators engaged in crypto-currency and blockchain activities in order to initiate a multi-disciplinary community of research and practice in this area. An outstanding line-up of speakers contributed to a thought-provoking, stimulating and lively discussion. It is hoped that this will be the first of a series of similar meetings. The programme and the full set of presentations from the event can be found via the links below. A full report on the day's preceedings will shortly be available.

TDL recommendations to NIS

Following the work undertaken by the Network and Information Security Public Private Platform (NIS Platform), in particular, the NIS Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), it became a priority for TDL to support this initiative by sharing knowledge and aligning priorities. As a result, TDL, who already had representatives involved and contributing to NIS, have concluded a short report highlighting some of the key (early) findings and recommendations, at both research and instruments level. Overall these proposed actions are aimed at complementing or supplementing the work done by the NIS Platform.

This report primarily targets the NIS Platform’s SRA, prepared by its WG3, and focusses on issues related to cybersecurity research and innovation in the context of the EU strategy for cybersecurity. However, the report is also relevant for other NIS WGs (i.e. WG1 on risk management and WG2 on information sharing) and the SRA community at large.
