This session covers Smart Contracts and the Ethereum Virtual Machine, as well as a history of how these heists have shaped Ethereum. Reserve a seat here.
In addition to this main session on Ethereum hacks, WatchGuard experts will be hosting a series of presentations at booth #S923, which will include:

Presented by: Marc Laliberte, Information Security Threat Analyst
