However, EBSec recognizes the need for comprehensive security frameworks focusing on the secure application of distributed ledger technology in industry-ready enterprise applications. To this end, a series of guidelines and security specifications are being developed to complement existing information security standards, such as ISO/IEC 27001:2013.

The Enterprise Blockchain Security Specification

The first specification published by EBSec is the Enterprise Blockchain Security Specification, a set of requirements divided into five domains, that define a base layer for enterprise blockchain security.
