Leveraging emerging technologies is critical for boards of directors and blockchain is one that’s gotten a lot of attention when it comes to changing the face of financial transactions. While blockchain, in the simplest sense is an open, online ledger/database dispersed among a network of computers, implementing the use of blockchain in organizations is a more complex undertaking. Boards must understand the risks and opportunities, the regulatory, compliance and accounting issues, and how best to move forward.

Attend our Blockchain for Boards webinar to learn what directors need to know about the pros and cons of blockchain; if and how to utilize the technology within your organization; and what types of efficiencies it can provide.
