Michele Mosca (University of Waterloo / evolutionQ) advises CIOs and CISOs on how to get prepared for the post quantum era. This requires defined people in charge and enough time to get all changes implemented.
Michele Mosca is co-founder and professor at the Institute of Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo. He also is founder and CEO of evolutionQ. Mr. Mosca researches cryptography and quantum technologies and supports organizations in getting prepared on the post quantum era.
Ownership and transition processes
In the beginning of 2019, we had the chance to discuss with Michele how quantum computing will decimate the security infrastructure of the digital economy. In the current interview, Michele highlights the importance of appointing people in charge of the transition process.
Such a process implies studying the impact of quantum computing on the organization and the identification of all involved stakeholders. The transition process will take time, and involves complex ecosystems / supply chains of suppliers and service partners.
In spite of today's many challenges and threats, companies need to get prepared now.
Work with the PQC experts
We at Utimaco have the honor to work with some of the leading researchers in quantum cryptography, who use our Hardware Security Modules.
The ultimate goal is to prepare:
the security infrastructure of the digital economy,
HSMs in unison for the post-quantum era.
Learn from the PQC and Cryptography experts
In the context of Utimaco’s Conferences and Applied Crypto Symposiums, we had the chance to interview leading researchers, innovation drivers and regulators, and to dive into their views and research agenda on post-quantum cryptography and the future of cryptography in general.
The series includes interviews with leading innovators at NIST, Diebold-Nixdorf, Samsung, Entrust Datacard, the Institute of Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, the Central Bank of Lithuania, the Cyber Risk Service at Deloitte and more.
