Governance contexts

Governance in Blockchain

Blockchain changes a number of Governance concepts fundamentally. Firstly, the approach is completely different in terms of "resilience" and business continuity management.

After all, transactions that use Blockchain are completely digital. Physical aspects of paper should only be taken into account to a very limited extent. One does not depend on "central" dependencies such as servers and mainframes. The mechanism is self-scaling and has a fully decentralized effect. The services that blockchain provides cannot in any way "go down".

Resilient Cities

Cities are the social and spatial framework for most people’s lives. (As the British Standards Institutions states in the introduction of its BS67000:2019 - City resilience guide).

This concentration of people, infrastructure, businesses and institutions creates a focal point for risks and opportunities. When shocks occur, they disrupt the continuity of services that most people take for granted.  (…)

Essential Services Providers and EU-NIS

Many organisations, active in energy, transport, gas, supply and distribution of drinking water), banking (although with many exceptions), infrastructure and service providers for the financial market, healthcare (hospitals) and digital service providers are subject to Network Information Security legislations of the countries they operate in.

It is also possible that your organization has interactions with the provider(s) of essential services. In many cases, such an organization will demand the same level of safety from its partners and suppliers.

Data Protection and GDPR / ISO 27701

The EU-GDPR was designed to give individuals back their control over personal information. It therefore significantly strengthens individuals’ rights against those organisations that process their data.

The EU-GDPR contributes to what is essential in a free economy and a free world: protecting rights and freedoms of people. No one will question this basic acquired freedom.
