When

does

also
immediately
spring
to
mind?

In
this
edition
of
Week
in
security,
Tony
examines
several
implications
of
the
lack
of
sound
security
practices
in
the
world
of
crypto.
For
example,
he
looks
at:

  • why
    the
    two
    core
    principles
    of
    cryptocurrencies

    i.e.,
    that
    they
    are
    decentralized
    and
    deregulated

    are
    both
    a
    blessing
    and
    a
    curse
  • why
    cryptocurrency
    has
    been
    co-opted
    as
    an
    ‘engine’
    for
    cybercrime
  • what
    else
    differentiates
    the
    crypto
    industry
    from
    the
    traditional
    financial
    industry
  • how
    the
    lack
    of
    regulation
    and
    oversight
    in
    the
    crypto
    industry
    ultimately
    leads
    to
    lax
    cybersecurity
    practices
  • how
    governments
    are
    responding
    and
    what
    lies
    ahead
    for
    the
    crypto
    industry
