Cybersecurity in the Quantum Future

June 15, 2021 • 3:00 – 4:00 pm EDT

The implementation of quantum computing will create vast opportunities for technological advancement, while also developing new challenges for cybersecurity. Faster speeds and more advanced capabilities are expected to allow quantum computers to break advanced encryptions in just 8 hours. These developments will likely spur advances in the security industry, but recent events show how existing solutions have slow adoption rates and poor implementation, making it harder to address vulnerabilities.

To discuss the future of cybersecurity and quantum technologies, join us for a virtual panel discussion with experts Lisa O’Connor from Accenture, Josyula "J.R." Rao from IBM, and Dustin Moody from NIST.

The following are a list of helpful resources to learn more about cybersecurity and quantum technologies:
