Cracking the Future: Why Quantum-resistant Algorithms Remain the World’s Responsibility


We know that technology promises us all so much, but quantum computing remains one of its most elusive and exciting areas of development. It has enormous potential to change the world we live in and the inherent potential to cripple secure systems and infrastructure across the world. We need to make sure that we handle the power of this new technology carefully and with great foresight. We come together with some of the world’s best quantum computing and cybersecurity experts to discuss the national security implications of this issue and what protocols, technologies, and potential algorithms we need to implement to ensure that we get ahead of this quantum curve.
