Chief Information Officers: What Quantum Computing’s Arrival Means for You. The ‘drama’ surrounding the media’s play for quantum computing is well, dramatic.
But take a step back and look at the reality of it. As a Chief Information Officer, you have an obligation to see past the drama and into the true issue surrounding your data’s security.
The RSA algorithm – to name a specific, potential target of large-scale, fully-functional, quantum computers – is vulnerable to quantum computing. Yet, it is likely entrenched in your information network’s menu of security or security-related protocols.
Time to take a serious look into the specter of quantum computing’s threat to encryption. This piece is a starter. We’ve tagged it as “Basic 101.” It will give you a very basic idea of what the cybersecurity world is facing when talking about quantum computing. Now is the time. Because quantum is coming. Qubit.
