美国国土安全部将“区块链系统管理者”一职列为“关键基础设施”岗位

2020-3-23 14:32

美国国土安全部(DHS)发表的一份备忘录将“区块链管理者”列为美国“关键基础设施”工作人员之一。

 

3月19日,国土安全部网络安全和基础设施安全局(CISA)发布了一份备忘录,强调了“关键基础设施行业”的工作人员在不断加剧的冠状病毒封锁中保持正常工作时间的“特殊责任”。

 

区块链与医疗和制药一起被列为“关键基础设施行业”

 

该文件将区块链管理者以及医疗、制药和食品供应列为“关键基础设施行业”。

将区块链系统管理者列入CISA的名单可能表明DHS认识到分布式账本技术(DLT)应用于冠状病毒救济工作的潜在优势。

 

区块链技术在应对冠状病毒威胁中的作用

 

在中国,区块链技术已经部署在20多个应用中,为政府遏制新冠病毒的传播做出了贡献。其中包括管理和跟踪健康记录、医疗用品和医疗数据的应用程序。

涉及区块链技术的公私合营平台也被证明是有效的,比如支付宝的DLT平台,它允许公众跟踪慈善捐款。

 

在香港,保险公司将DLT视为简化医疗索赔流程的一种方法,Ant金融公司推出了一个“集体索赔”平台来加速处理时间。

 

A memorandum published by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has named “blockchain managers” among the nation’s “essential critical infrastructure” workers.

 

On March 19, the DHS’ Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published a memo emphasizing the “special responsibility” of workers within a “critical infrastructure industry” to maintain normal working schedules amid the intensifying coronavirus lockdown.

 

Blockchain named alongside healthcare and pharma as “critical infrastructure industries”

 

The document names blockchain managers alongside healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and food supply as “critical infrastructure industries.”

 

The inclusion of blockchain managers on CISA’s list may indicate the DHS’s recognition of the potential for distributed ledger technologies (DLT) to be employed in coronavirus relief efforts.

 

The role of blockchain technology in responding to the coronavirus threat

 

In China, blockchain technology has been deployed in more than 20 applications, contributing to government efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. These include applications which manage and track health records, medical supplies, and medical data.

 

Private-public initiatives involving blockchain have also proven effective, such as Alipay’s DLT platform, which allows charitable donations to be tracked by the public.

In Hong Kong, insurers have looked to DLT as a way to streamline the paperwork processes surrounding medical claims, with Ant Financial launching a ‘collectiv

e-claims’ platform to speed-up processing times.
