Quantum computing promises significant breakthroughs that benefit all human kind in science, medicine, financial services, and more. But what does quantum computing mean for data security?

This session will provide an overview of the current state of the art in quantum computing. It will address the threats to the cryptographic mechanisms that constitute the backbone of current data security: Confidentiality, Integrity, and Authentication.

We will survey the current activities in quantum computing cryptography. This ranges from the Canadian Space Agency deploying a quantum cryptographic satellite in Earth's orbit by the end of 2022, to the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) working with companies like IBM to find cryptographic algorithms that can withstand attacks at a quantum level.

Attendees will gain an understanding of the threats, both current and imminent, that quantum computing poses to data security. Although a cryptography can be a complex topic, Mr. Hoffer has plenty of experience distilling the topic into pertinent, understandable concepts for all skill levels. Attendees will leave with a sense of relief for the near-term future, but a healthy respect for what is to come.
