The #QuantumThreat is real, and needs to be on the agenda of every company board!
We are still in the early days of quantum computing technology, but it’s clear that this is an area that businesses should be paying attention to. The potential threats and risks associated with quantum computing are serious, but they can be mitigated with proper planning and preparation. It’s time for companies to start taking steps now in order to protect themselves from future problems—and if you don’t believe us, just ask Google!
Remember, quantum computers already exist. And, while today’s commercially-created quantum machines are nowhere near powerful enough to approach quantum supremacy, absolutely nobody knows the true extent of the quantum capabilities of all of the technologically-advanced governments around the world.
The risks of quantum computing are real and growing. As a business operating in a regulated industry, you may think that the threat of quantum computing is theoretical or limited to other industries such as finance or research. However, this is not the case—the risk of quantum computing will affect every industry.
Quantum computers are coming and they’re going to change the way we work. If you’re an executive or a business owner, it’s important that you understand the risks associated with quantum computing and begin taking steps now in order to prepare for what lies ahead.
To get started, consider these tips:
- Know your options (and don’t be afraid to explore new ones). You may think that your company is too small or too large for quantum-safe encryption, but if this isn’t true then it’s worth exploring all of your options before making assumptions about what can be done.
- There may also be other technologies available that can help protect against quantum attacks, such as hardware security modules (HSMs). HSM devices connect directly into a company’s systems via USB ports in order to provide additional security measures against any type of cyberattack—including those from quantum computers!
- It’s important not only that companies understand their own needs when it comes time for new technology but also how these needs fit into larger trends happening within industries like healthcare where patients’ privacy concerns need addressing urgently before any potential interference occurs due specifically because they were unprepared beforehand.
You need to act now!
We at IronCAP™ have been trying to educate businesses and individuals that Q-day (the day the first quantum hack is publicly recognized) is around the corner and everybody needs to gear up. Nation states and governments are already at it, how about you? To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.
IronCAP™ is our latest innovation for the post-quantum cybersecurity. This patent-protected, post-quantum cryptographic system is based on the Goppa Code-based cryptographic technology. It has embedded our proprietary subclass of (L, G) making it not only more secured but also has faster cryptographic operations (key generation, encryption, decryption) than the traditional Goppa Code-based technology (McEliece). We are offering a live demonstration for the general public to try and experience the strength of IronCAP™ post-quantum encryption easily. To learn more, visit www.ironcap.ca.
