Assessing the True Threat and Potential Damage of Quantum Computing Cyberattacks

Presented by

Stan Mesceda, Senior Product Manager, Thales and Eric Hay, Director of Field Engineering, Quantum Xchange

About this talk

Quantum computing is progressing rapidly, and in only a few years, a quantum cyberattack could cripple large networks in a matter of minutes. What happens when a cybercriminal, armed with the quantum power to break traditional encryption algorithms, can analyze massive amounts of data sets in seconds, or compromise critical infrastructure in the same amount of time? Where will the attack come from? What industries are most likely to be targeted first? In this webinar, data security experts from Thales and Quantum Xchange discuss the anatomy of a cyberattack, and assess how much more destructive they will be when backed by the power of quantum computing. Next, we’ll offer guidance of how to meet emerging government mandates and prepare for the forthcoming crypto migration – replacing classic encryption with NIST-backed Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) algorithms.
