The Government Blockchain Association (GBA) announced that the European Commission’s TITANIUM former Project Lead, Dr. Ross King, will be speaking at the Legal, Law Enforcement and Cybersecurity Forum during Government Blockchain Week in May 2021. This weeklong blockchain event will bring together policy makers in government, finance, and law enforcement from around the world to the US Capitol in Washington DC.

Dr. King is the Head of Competence Unit: Data Science & Artificial Intelligence at the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH. He will be sharing his insight into the multi-stakeholder research project whose objective is to shape how Global Law Enforcement undertakes cyber investigations.

TITANIUM, (an acronym for 'Tools for the Investigation of Transactions in Underground Markets') was a consortium of 15 partners comprising organizations from 7 European Countries. Amongst these partners are INTERPOL and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH, and their department, the Center for Digital Safety and Security. Their objective was to research, develop and validate a system of novel data that could support cyber investigations by 'following the money' and implementing chains of evidence that Courts could use in prosecutions.

The project concluded in April of 2020, allowing attendees at Government Blockchain Week to benefit from Dr. King's post-project synopsis of TITANIUM.

Additional speakers will be Robert Whitaker from the Blockchain Intelligence Group, (BIG), and Mr. Majid Malaika, a Cybersecurity and Digital Technology Expert from the Inter Monetary Fund, (IMF).

 Government Blockchain Week Tickets go on sale October 30, 2020.
