With cryptocurrency and cybersecurity issues continuing to make daily news (just yesterday, genealogy site MyHeritage announced a data breach of more than 92 million users), Professor John Savage of Brown University's Department of Computer Science (Brown CS) has been sharing his technical and policy expertise on the world stage. Last month, he served on the Socio-economic Aspects of Blockchain and Crypto panel of the ninth annual Asian Leadership Conference in Seoul, South Korea, which chose "Globalization in Crisis: Navigating the World with New Opportunities" as its theme.

Other panelists included Ben Banerjee (Co-founder and Board Member of Swiss Impact Investment Association (SIIA) and the Board of Councilors at East West Institute and Climate Leadership Coalition), Amir Dossal (President and CEO at Global Partnerships Forum / Former United Nations Chief Liaison for Partnerships), and Jason Hsu (Crypto Congressman and Legislator of Taiwan). Sponsored by Chosunilbo, one of the three largest South Korean daily newspapers, the Asian Leadership Conference draws global leaders, policymakers, and top academics from around the world, who come together to discuss and provide possible solutions for the pressing issues facing Asia today. This year's conference had approximately 3,000 attendees.
