About the Event

As new threats emerge, cybersecurity has become a key issue for the freight and logistics industry. The theme for this symposium was built around cybersecurity challenges and the new technologies such as blockchain that address them.

In the keynote presentation, Leo Janus, senior offering manager at IBM Supply Chain Insights, highlighted the use of new technology to build trust across supply-chain networks for improved transparency, efficiency, and security.

This symposium was sponsored by the Center for Transportation Studies at the University of Minnesota, in cooperation with:
