Panel: The Quantum Security Challenge

Quantum computing is advancing rapidly, and its impact is likely to be large—their potential computational power that could render today’s encryption algorithms obsolete. To address this looming threat, the White House issued a National Security Memorandum on Promoting United States Leadership in Quantum Computing While Mitigating Risks to Vulnerable Cryptographic Systems (NSM 10) this May. The NSM 10 fact sheet states that “America must start the lengthy process of updating our IT infrastructure today to protect against this quantum computing threat tomorrow.”  This begs the question,  how should agencies start to transition to quantum-safe cryptography?

Attend this webinar to learn how to develop a quantum safe transition strategy. Panelists will discuss the quantum threat to today’s cryptography and provide guidance on how to prepare for the future.
