Quantum Computing and Preparing Cyber-Systems for the Post-Quantum Era

  1. Moscone South

Has meaningful progress been made toward fault-tolerant quantum computers since last year? How close is the “quantum threat” to public-key cryptography? What should we be looking for? More stakeholders are starting to prepare for the transition to post-quantum algorithms. What is being done already and what else could or should be done now?

Learning Objectives:
1: Develop a realistic assessment of the state of quantum computing.
2: Learn how others are proactively preparing.
3: Identify practical, useful and prioritized next steps for the next 12 months.
