Known as the first ever registered P-Rep candidate (we covered their story way back in March), ICON Sweden boasts years of experience in security, privacy and risk management. Learn more on their security-focused team in this week’s P-Rep Profile

1. Tell us about your team.

ICON Sweden (Core Net AB) is a young and agile company that started in 2017. We have a diverse team of members, most of whom have two or more technical Masters degrees (with majors in Computer Science, Security, and Project Management). Most of us have more than 10 years of technical experience in big global enterprises such as Ericsson, HP, IBM and big Banks. ICON Sweden manages complex hybrid-cloud blockchain infrastructures and provides security, privacy, reliable operations, governance, legal, compliance and risk management services. We are experienced block producers and have active block production nodes in several blockchain projects, such as Telos, EOS, MEET.ONE, Snax, EOS Mainnet (Standby), D.Tube, & more.

2. Why would you like to become an ICON P-Rep?

We participated in ICON’s ICO and have been with them since 2017. We are the first ever registered P-Rep candidate. We are confident that new innovations in blockchain technology and business models have the potential to fundamentally change the global economy and social systems. We believe ICON has the potential to ‘hyperconnect the world’ and ensure mass market adoption by integrating diverse blockchain systems and communities. These are some of the reasons that we would like to become one of the top P-Rep candidates.

3. Why should the voters vote for YOU?

We will contribute to grow the ICON ecosystem regarding three aspects: 1) Security: Our team has expertise in industry best practices in security, privacy and risks management [EU GDPR, ISO 27001, ISO 27002, ISO 27017, ISO 27018, NIST CSF, NIST SP 800-171, NIST SP 800-53, CSA CCM]. Our top priority is to deploy and manage highly secure, reliable, resilient, and redundant P-Rep infrastructure. We can contribute by sharing our knowledge and experience in this area. 2) Community Growth: We will focus on the growth of the ICON community. 3) Mass Market Adoption: We want to focus on e-governance. We believe that e-governance related DApps can ensure mass market adoption by getting citizens more involved.

4. What do you like about ICON? What sets it apart from other blockchain platforms?

ICON’s goal of ‘hyperconnecting the world’ is something we truly believe in and are amazed by. Moreover ICON has good governance and a great focus on decentralization. We also appreciate the strong ICON community, who will play a key role in ICON governance. ICON also has some user friendly tools. These are some of the building blocks that sets it apart from other blockchain platforms.

5. How do you envision a decentralized ICON network? Why is decentralization important?

Decentralization ensures redundancy, reliability, and trustworthiness. It also enhances the security of blockchain and makes it tamper-resistant. Decentralization of the blockchain is necessary to ensure long-term healthy growth.
