The CyberChain Cybersecurity Chair coordinated by the University of Salamanca and the Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE), launches its first course on "Blockchain, self-sovereign identities and legal matters", a free online course, available on the e4you platform. 

The course is designed to provide a comprehensive learning experience, where students can link theory, practice and a critical analysis of blockchain technology. The course aims to minimise the gap between the needs of the sector and the highly qualified professionals who can provide these services. To this end, 

the basic concepts of blockchain, its history and evolution, as well as applications and use cases in different industries will be explained.

The course will also analyse the implication of cybersecurity in Blockchain technology. Blockchain itself is not immune to cyber-attacks or fraud and the different attacks that it can suffer (routing, Sybil, 51% or even phishing attacks) are well known, so throughout the course, special attention will be paid to cybersecurity issues so that all attendees learn how to design solutions based on Blockchain technology, optimising their security levels. 


Sovereign identities, the principles of self-managed identities with smart contracts, the integration of identity and access management in Blockchain, digital wallets and asset management will also be addressed. All of this will be underpinned by legal aspects, which will be reviewed theoretically and practically, to ensure compliance with the different regulations that are in force, with a special focus on the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

The initiative is carried out within the framework of the European Union-funded Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (Next Generation), a project of the Spanish Government that outlines the roadmap for the modernisation of the Spanish economy, the recovery of economic growth and job creation, for solid, inclusive and resilient economic reconstruction after the COVID-19 crisis, and to respond to the challenges of the next decade.
