Blockchain Risk Identification Checklist
New technologies carry potential downsides that need to be identified and managed. This is especially true when that technology is not merely an overlaying application but rather a core part of the organization’s underlying IT infrastructure, as is often the case with blockchain.
This template provides key risks for blockchain technology. The list is not meant to be exhaustive. With that in mind, project managers should view the information as generic guidance and work with relevant internal stakeholders, such as cybersecurity, internal audit, finance, compliance, legal, operations, and information technology teams to identify and prioritize risks that are significant for their deployment and develop mechanisms to manage the risks proactively.
