7.00 CPE Hours (Category 1, Category 2, Category 3, Category 4, Others)
Classroom


Programme Objective

This workshop is designed to help accountants and auditors gain a thorough non-technical understanding of blockchain technology and how it is used by businesses  oday. Participants will learn about the most common types of distributed ledgers.  articular emphasis will be put on trust, security, accountability and auditability aspects of blockchains.

 

Blockchain is a decentralised ledger of transactions across a peer-to-peer (P2P) network. It allows participants to transact with each other securely and transparently without the need for a central authority. Companies are transforming supply chain, trade finance, insurance, health care, KYC and digital identity businesses through blockchain infrastructure.

 

As more and more traditional companies are interacting with blockchain infrastructure, accountants, auditors and finance professionals need to develop a solid understanding of the technology, in particular:

• Distributed vs. conventional ledgers

• The nature of crypto currencies

• Security and accountability of blockchain records

• What all of this means for the future of the audit profession

 

This workshop will explain blockchain as a promising architecture for digital records and transaction data. Rather than delving into technical and abstract details, it will bring to life business benefits, real use cases and implications for accountants and auditors in a tangible way.
