2101740 - Are You Ready for Scaled Quantum Computing? Anticipating Cryptographic Readiness Challenges for a Quantum Age

Oct 12, 2022 10:15am ‐ Oct 12, 2022 11:15am


Enterprise security teams are increasingly aware of post-quantum cryptography (PQC), which is actively being standardized by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. At some point, PQC protection from the threat of scaled quantum computers will become a regulatory requirement, rather than a fuzzy future concern on a long to-do list. What can and should an organization be doing to plan for PQC readiness given the complexity of today’s enterprise compute infrastructures? In this session, we will discuss the technology advancement timelines, the challenges of standards implementation and deployment, approaches to migrating applications and cryptographic agility, and pointers on organizational planning for what will be a disruptive IT challenge for every organization.

Learning Objectives:
  • Better understand a disruptive challenge that will impact IT security organizations in the future: new, quantum-safe, public-key cryptography standards.
  • Hear about migration strategies and cryptographic agility which will help to enable the transition.
  • Receive tips on organizational planning and steps to prepare for this disruptive change.
