Blockchain Technology | Its Contribution To Africas Cyber-Security

Blockchain Technology | Its Contribution To Africa's Cyber-Security
Blockchain technology is a tamper-resistant, distributed and shared databases.

They are programmed in such a way that every participant of user of the network can use them however they can’t be controlled. It is also known as a kind of database used to bank assets and digital records. Participants are a group of people who share the database and they have access to submit any new records for inclusion. The records can only be included in the database when all the participants reach an agreement to do so. They cannot be erased or edited once they have been put there on agreement too.

Three Reasons Why Blockchains Are Very Important

There are so many things that amount to the importance and in-negligence of blockchains, but we will see a few of them. It has always been so difficult to trust people with our information over unsecured or unencrypted online platforms. It is no new news that not every data exchange platforms are trustworthy as far as the internet is concerned and this is a very great issue to call to action. 

The new innovation of the blockchain has gone a long way to solving these problems and not only that, but providing long lasting solutions to them. It is modeled in such a way that the it will pretend or assume that some of its users will attempt to manipulate and adjust some of the valid data in order to create fiction by generating some false data. 

The various blockchain platforms aid us in stopping these mishaps. They create some varieties of messaging platforms using some advanced techniques. 
They do this by ensuring that no data are maneuvered or adjusted in the secret loopholes that will result in an alteration of the data in question. They prevent the deletion of the valid data by rejecting some invalid data. These types of innovations are very good even beyond the three advantages which we will see below. They go a very long way in the protection of our data and information and limiting un-allowed access to them.
- They are designed to ensure the protection of data in an internet contested environment. They help build trust as people will work with confidence in their cyber security. They are built in such a way to assume compromise from the within, rather than fighting their boundaries’ compromises.

- They help the overall network to combat the issue of malicious attacks. Cyber attacks in the form of malware are doing a lot of harm to the cyber world as at present. They are responsible for the various data hacks, scams, leaks and so many other cyber mishaps that occur on a regular frequency. These blockchains help us a long way in the prevention of these mishaps. The system is programmed in such a way to take the advantages of the asymmetric, against the minority or few. 

- The third advantages we will share are on the issue of trusts and secrets. The blockchains are not in any way built to be dependent on trust of keeping of secrets by humans. Everything is automated. Humans are not part of their data protection policies. This are enforced with the fact that the system is not attached to any human operators or administrators, who will have some access to the stored data and information. It is a step to boost its security function and also build users’ trust and the services’ integrity.
Speaking further on the advantages of the blockchains, they also operate solemnly and off any external functions, to also help boost their security functions. 

They are made to be able to operate successfully and also very secured in an open cyber world or the internet. They do not in any ways function with any entrusted cyber authorities. 
They make the managing and also the tracking of digital identities very effective and secured. Whether you need them for national security, documentation of high profile data, citizenship documentation or any other functions, they help a lot.
