Straddling the Next Frontier Part 2: How Quantum Computing has already begun impacting the Cyber Security landscape
by Eric Jodoin
Theoretical designs of quantum computing are progressively transmuting into practical applications. But, when will such applications of quantum physics phenomena become available? How will they impact the cyber security landscape? As cyber security professionals, what must we know and what must we start doing today to be ready? Using the foundation developed in my previous paper, part 2 focuses on understanding the threats as well as existing and developing opportunities. The first objective of part two is to help the reader take preemptive steps in a timely fashion and posture defenses appropriately. The second objective is to help readers gain the knowledge that will help ensure they can be ready to take full advantage of quantum computing opportunities as they becomes available.
