The Next Horizon: Revolutionizing Security with Post-Quantum Cryptography


Quantum computers are expected to solve some computational problems that are intractable with today's supercomputers. A worldwide race is on to build more and more powerful quantum computers. Google's Quantum Supremacy demonstration in 2019 has only been one of the first steps on this path. Along with many opportunities, quantum computing creates a significant risk for the whole industry. The same quantum computers that can be used to design new materials and drugs will be able to crack encryption, potentially exposing secrets. This presentation shows how we are impacted and what are the essential steps to mitigate the risk.

The Risk of Quantum for PKI and How to Handle It

Watch the video


Quantum computing has found its way into Deutsche Bahn's technology roadmap. In the session I’ll give an introduction where is it used, which use cases are being developed, which skills does the industry need? The key question is which risks do we expect and how can we prepare our organization against attacks, some keywords are NIST, PQC, crypto agility. I will give an overview of the international quantum landscape and its progress. You will get hands on advice how to establish a maturity model for quantum readiness and an enterprise program to become quantum ready.

Building Your Cybersecurity Strategy with Emerging Security and Privacy Technologies

Watch the video


In this session, I will give an overview of a number of emerging security and privacy technologies, such as advanced cryptography (e.g., lightweight cryptography, post-quantum cryptography, etc.), privacy-enhancing technologies (e.g., confidential computing, zero-knowledge proof, etc.), and blockchain, and discuss why and how organizations should consider building their cybersecurity strategies with these emerging technologies.
