Prevent ransomware attacks with blockchain

May 17, 2017 | Written by: Anton.McConville(at)

This weekend saw a large scale ‘ransomware’ attack. It affected among other institutions, the National Health Service in the UK. Patient treatment was delayed and new born babies had to stay at hospitals a little longer than they should, because their identity couldn’t be registered. This made me wonder if health records stored in blockchain could have helped prevent ransomware attacks.

I’d been slow to take an interest in blockchain or Bitcoin technology. I have never really been interested in cyber finance, or cyber security (much to the horror of many of my more informed software development colleagues) until I started work on a blockchain project last month.

However, when I started learning more about it, I came to see that blockchain is a shift in thinking about the ‘value’ of data, and human interaction, as much as it is about technology.
