The Power of Blockchain

You heard about crypto, right? For the last few years, crypto has been in everyone’s mouth for good and bad reasons. Crypto brought a decentralized new paradigm on financial assets and an economy that a few years back we couldn’t even imagine. But crypto is only a use case of blockchain technology, can you even imagine all that’s possible to do with it?

If we think about web1 as the primordial stage of the Internet, it was a great way to enable us to start consuming information and communicating from a global perspective. Web2 shortly followed, where we could read information, write, contribute, and generate data, in a distributed manner.

Web3 is a huge leap from that, built on top of the protocols inherited from web2 and enabling both the decentralization and ownership of information, as well as accountability and trust as a fundamental technological feature across all network layers – that is the power of blockchain. Web3 has been an umbrella concept that encompasses many things, this evolution is where blockchain technology is best equipped to enable new use cases and businesses we have never imagined before.

In fact, blockchain promises a huge revolution, not only business-wise but also in how businesses are run and governed. All this revolving a fundamental value for performing any type of interaction across a distributed ecosystem: the concept of trust!

Enterprise blockchains

On the enterprise side of blockchain, there are a lot of concerns around topics like performance, scalability, energy consumption, ESG, and of course… data privacy.

When we think about information sharing from a business perspective as it occurs today, using legacy solutions, it has a huge underlying cost associated with it. It is feasible, as companies are already doing it, but it is also expensive and a result of intense and painfully hard work.

We believe blockchain is here to help bring transparency and technological easiness to companies doing business transactions with multiple parties where information needs to be shared…. But, as we all know there are always trade-offs.

The way we see it is that this trade-off comes in the form of business strategies. Companies need to adapt and change the way they interact and do business with each other, meeting the new web3 era. When a business unlocks and starts pursuing value, technology is for sure not the limit.,

Let’s Celebrate – Promotions Events in Lisbon and Porto

We gathered our colleagues to celebrate their promotions and new roles! With the presence of our leadership team, these were important moments to recognise how critical and influential our people are to make a visible difference at Celfocus.

GDPR 5th Anniversary and New Personal Data Processing Procedure

On GDPR’s 5th anniversary, we reinforced that we all play an important role in Celfocus’ Privacy Management System and in keeping our commitment to protect personal data. It is everyone’s responsibility to act in compliance with Celfocus’ Privacy Policies and Procedures, therefore we are sharing the new version of our Personal Data Processing Procedure – a document with a set of instructions regarding personal data processing that reflects GDPR’s requirements as well as those in other relevant data protection frameworks.

From the General Data Protection Regulation requirements to the ones established in third countries data protection frameworks, which have been arising globally since the GDPR came into force (namely in Africa and Middle East), navigating the global data protection landscape and demonstrating compliance with it still represents a challenge for most organisations.

As these frameworks continue to be released, a Gartner survey predicts that by the end of 2024, 75% of the world’s population will have its personal data covered under modern privacy regulations.

The ever-evolving regulatory landscape we operate in poses challenges to privacy management, being essential to embed data protection in our organisational culture, providing a shared understanding of how personal data should be processed, and continuously improve Celfocus’ Privacy Management System to meet both legal and contractual requirements.
