Doomsday Clock Time …The migration to quantum-safe algorithms could take several years, and for some industries – like healthcare and financial services – the transition is already underway due to technology lifecycles and long-life data that has to remain secure…​

To put it into perspective, the migration from SHA-1 to SHA-2 raised numerous alarm bells for the security and cryptography community and it was generally seen as a straightforward migration. But when the time came, organizations struggled with it and some are still figuring it out today.

 

…The transition to post-quantum will be more complex than cryptographic transitions in the past. This should be a call to action for organizations to begin considering the impacts to their digital infrastructure…
