Quantum computing will deliver huge leaps forward in processing power, calculating in seconds what would take thousands of years to complete with today’s fastest supercomputers. But they also threaten online security as we know it, placing everything from critical infrastructure to healthcare to banking at risk. To prepare for this, NIST recently selected new algorithms that will form the basis for post-quantum cryptography standards that can run on non-quantum computers to help keep our data and devices secure. But establishing protection against the threat posed by quantum computers isn’t as simple as just defining a new standard. This session will cover the risks posed by quantum computers, the outlook for the new NIST standard and the steps in between, including updating devices already deployed
