Every advancement in quantum computing brings us closer to the positive and negative disruptions this revolutionary technology promises. Though a large-scale quantum computer is not here yet, its future arrival already puts many aspects of information security at risk today because of “harvest-and-decrypt” attacks, for example, where adversaries collect and store encrypted data with the intention of decrypting it in the future.
Now, business leaders recognize that they need to start preparing and are asking how they can become ‘quantum-ready.’
For security leaders, protecting your organization’s critical assets, products and confidential data using a quantum-safe method is essential. We will discuss two such approaches: quantum-safe cryptography and quantum key distribution.
