March 6, 2019Steven Teppler Spoke at the RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco

Steven Teppler, Chair of Mandelbaum Salsburg's Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice Group spoke at the RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco yesterday. This is one of the largest cyber security conferences in the world with over 50,000 attendees. His session was entitled "Blockchain Anchored Swap Meet: A Mock Trial" and along with an expert panel that included a security architect, CTO, and Chief United States Magistrate Judge, he helped attendees explore whether a recording using a voiceprint for an electronic signature can be a legal writing, if voice prints are robust enough to resist forgery and if blockchain can provide fine enough granularity to be a trusted timestamp service.To learn more about this conference, visit www.rsaconference.com....
