Quantum computing is still years away from widespread commercial use. But did you know that you should already be protecting yourself and future-proofing your encryption against the power of quantum computing? In this episode of the Georgian Impact Podcast, Jon Prial welcomes Mike Brown, CTO of Isara and former VP of Security at BlackBerry to discuss why we should address the risks of quantum computing sooner rather than later.

 

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How encryption works and how it will change with quantum computing
  • How quantum will help solve some of our hardest problems
  • Why quantum computing will pose a threat to today’s encryption standards
  • What you can do to prepare your organization today
