Stanford offers certificate course on cryptocurrencies

Acknowledging the potential of virtual currencies to transform the business payment transaction system, the Stanford Centre for Professional development is offering a certificate course on "Crypto Currencies: Bitcoin and Friends" in its Cyber Security graduate certificate program. The program will provide a professional, technical and policy view of the challenges created by rapid advancements in information technology.

"The technology behind Bitcoin and other crypto currencies can be an indispensable tool for protecting information," says Dan Boneh, Professor of Computer Science at the Stanford School of Engineering.

Boneh will be teaching a course on the subject and extending it online to professionals enrolled in the program. A free webinar to provide a sneak-peek into the online program will be held on Tuesday, August 25th from 10-11 am Pacific/1-2 pm Eastern.

During the webinar, Boneh will talk about recent developments in virtual currency and computer security. He focuses his research on developing security mechanisms that are easy to use and deploy.

Information security managers, web developers, computer network architects and other professionals working in computer occupations will find the program helpful.

"Stanford is actively working to address the world's cybersecurity challenges. It's an exciting time to study with us and gain vital skills needed for today's cyber workforce," says Boneh.
