Those attending the Channel-Sec partner security conference in London on March 14 will receive a pre-release copy of a definitive new book on Blockchain to help them plan their strategies. At the event, Igor Pejic from BNP Paribas PF AT, part of Europe’s largest banking group, will talk about blockchain and its role in financial services and the services the IT industry offers as revealed in his new book, Blockchain Babel.
The book is due to be released in March, and provides a straightforward, actionable guide to understanding the most disruptive technology of recent times, positioning it in the historic nature of financial services and technology and looking at how it is set to change the business world.
IT Europa says this book is essential reading if you want to understand the nature of the technology, and importantly, how it fits into the market. If you are involved in security as part of your channel strategy, and if your customers are asking about blockchain, you need to read this. And because IT Europa thinks this is such an important message in the overall context of security, attending the event gets you a free signed copy even before the rest of the world!
Importantly, Blockchain Babel reveals how Google, Amazon and other data giants could use blockchain to try to break into financial services; it uses systematic research and strategic analysis to fill the current void between speculation and overly complex explanation of blockchain. The IT channel needs to appreciate just how big a change this will mean for most of their customers, not just those in financial services.
And the implications for the future of financial institutions are profound. It cuts through the jargon and applies management theory to create a highly engaging and actionable guide for non-technical readers.
The book is written by academic and banking industry expert Igor Pejic, who wrote the book after being voted by the FT and McKinsey as one of the three finalists for the Bracken Bower Prize because of his work on Blockchain. He will present his thoughts on the afternoon of Channel-Sec, held at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington on March 14th. Channel-Sec is FREE to attend for IT Resellers, VARs and Systems Integrators, Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Managed Security Service providers (MSSPs) and ISVs who market direct to end customers.
