Post Quantum: How Government Can Get Ready With a Quantum Safe Framework – Panel Discussion & White Paper
The ATARC Quantum Working Group is hosting an event to discuss the important topic of how the federal government should become quantum ready. Malicious actors are trying to collect valuable and sensitive data today (even in encrypted form) in hopes that it can be decrypted in the future.
Come and hear about important legislative initiatives which are aimed at ensuring the government has the plan to transition to a quantum safe system from our Congressional Keynote: Rep. Ro Khanna (invited). Our panel of experts will provide an overview of cybersecurity threats and policies, NIST’s ongoing post-quantum cryptography initiative, and will discuss a recommended quantum safe framework which is highlighted in the ATARC quantum working group’s white paper: Quantum Safe Framework: An Intra and Inter-agency Guide to Being Quantum Ready.
