WATERLOO – Experts from around the world will gather in Ottawa this week to discuss cybersecurity in a quantum world.

The University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), in partnership with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), will host the 2nd Quantum-Safe Cryptography Workshop in our nation’s capital. The workshop brings together leading experts in cybersecurity, quantum computing and quantum technologies, along with government and industry leaders to develop a roadmap to ensure tomorrow’s cybersecurity protocols are secure in a world with quantum computers.

“We must start thinking about the future today,” says Michele Mosca, deputy director of IQC and co-organizer of the workshop. “It takes years to establish the right standards and protocols for cybersecurity. We don’t have a large-scale quantum computer yet, but we are quickly getting closer and there is a serious risk of having such quantum computers before the right quantum-safe protocols are in place.”
