Preparing for Q-Day: Post Quantum Cryptography (PQC) Efforts for Agencies

As quantum computing advances, the looming threat it poses to traditional cryptographic systems becomes increasingly palpable. Government agencies, entrusted with safeguarding sensitive data and communications, must proactively prepare for the era of quantum computing to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of their operations. This panel will delve into the imperative of post-quantum cryptography (PQC) efforts for agencies, examining strategies for transitioning to quantum-resistant cryptographic algorithms and securing critical infrastructure in the face of quantum threats.
