  • Quantum-Safe Cybersecurity from Hype to Reality-Steps to Quantum Threat Resilience for Business and Society

    Practical quantum computing is expected to break the security of nearly all important public-key cryptographic primitives used in today’s digital communication. That critical moment is still some years ahead, but rapid technological developments highlight the urgent need to address quantum readiness and the shift to quantum-safe cybersecurity. But what is really needed? How can we prepare and protect against quantum risks? What are the challenges on the way to the transition? What approaches and technologies are currently available, and where do current solutions and quick-fix promises fall short? The event will do a deep dive with experts in the field on the issues and the critical steps we need to take.
    Aimed at business leaders, cyber security experts, and policy-makers, this event brings together international and local speakers to discuss managing the risks and ensure a sustainable and resilient transition to quantum-safeness for business and society. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities for the cybersecurity sector and how international collaboration can foster a quantum-safe technology supply chain today.

  • What Cybersecurity Needs To Get Quantum-Safe

    What cybersecurity needs to get quantum-safe:
    Our approach to cybersecurity needs an upgrade to be ready for the future era of quantum computers. It’s known that some of today’s widely used cryptographic systems – such as RSA – are crackable when large-scale quantum computers become available. That has motivated a worldwide search for new algorithms expected to be resistant to quantum computing. While it’s not clear whether quantum computing may take 5, 10, 20 or even more years to pose a threat, quantum-safe encryption can already be layered onto existing schemes to offer longer-term protection.
    Earlier this year, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology announced a shortlist of promising ‘post-quantum’ algorithms for public-key encryption, key-establishment and digital signatures. These candidates were selected after a six-year process that started with an open call.
    In this session, hear from experts from Singapore and Switzerland about the algorithms shortlisted to be adopted as quantum-safe standards and how they may be deployed – from trials getting underway in Singapore to experimental implementations on satellites. The discussion will also explore the role small states can play in the quantum science and technology ecosystem.

  • An Introduction to the Quantum Computing Ecosystem

    The intrinsic complexity of quantum computing adds an aura of mystery to the industry. As a reaction, it is customary to oversimplify quantum companies into the two overarching categories of 'software' and 'hardware' while assuming that all quantum practitioners are physicists.
