Technologies able to harness the power of quantum physics continue to evolve and become commercially available. Some of the disruptions caused by quantum technology are already known, while others continue to be discovered. The most concrete disruption known to date is to the foundations of cyber security.
The security and availability of our digital infrastructures depend critically on strong cryptographic algorithms that will be broken by sufficiently powerful quantum computers. Thus there is an economic and security imperative to prepare and be ready for the advent of large-scale quantum computers.
This presentation will overview the fundamental elements of quantum risk management and the migration to a new cryptographic foundation for our digital economy that is stronger than ever.
