When:  Apr 4, 2024 from 18:00 to 20:00 (PT)
Associated with  Silicon Valley Chapter

Topic 1: Generative AI in Healthcare - Tech Stack, Prompt Engineering, Cybersecurity & Compliance Risks

Brief: Generative AI in Healthcare has the opportunity to transform the health sciences as we know it today. If done right, it represents a paradigm shift towards making Healthcare for humans and animals more efficient, cost-effective, and accessible. One of the most significant benefits of AI in Healthcare could be “Personalized Healthcare.” AI in Healthcare is critical, but it is not risk-free. Some cybersecurity and compliance risks in existing systems & services also impact AI systems. The session will discuss thoughts on managing existing and AI-related risks.

Topic 2: Zero Trust in Web3 Technologies

Brief: As the Web3 industry continues to evolve, so do security, risk, compliance, and data integrity challenges. With the decentralization of systems and the proliferation of blockchain technology, traditional security models must be revised to safeguard against modern threats. In response, Zero Trust emerges as a revolutionary approach to security, emphasizing strict risk controls and continuous verification. This presentation explores the implementation of Zero-Trust principles within the Web3 industry. It explains their significance in mitigating risks associated with user identification, decentralized applications on current cloud systems, blockchain wallets, and transaction signing. By scrutinizing every access attempt and transaction, Zero-Trust ensures a proactive defense strategy, thwarting malicious actors before they can exploit vulnerabilities. Key topics include the core tenets of Zero Trust, such as identity verification, system access, and transaction signatures. Additionally, practical strategies for integrating Zero Trust frameworks into decentralized applications (dApps) and blockchain networks will be discussed, empowering developers and stakeholders to fortify their systems against emerging threats. Through real-world case studies and insights from industry experts, this presentation aims to equip participants with the knowledge and tools necessary to embrace Zero Trust as a cornerstone of security in the Web3 landscape, fostering trust, transparency, and resilience in the decentralized ecosystem.
