21-05-2024 17:00 21-05-2024 17:30 Europe/Madrid Quantum Computing and Understanding Crypto BoMs Quantum physics often appears in Hollywood as simplified and fantastical, far from its reality as a deeply challenging scientific, technological, and human endeavour. My presentation aims to ground the reality of quantum physics, showcasing quantum computing— its greatest invention—and its potential to solve problems beyond traditional computing’s reach. As we enter its 'era of utility,' acknowledging the complexities it brings is crucial. And, as good engineers know, solving one hard problem often creates another. And so, our growing reliance on data and the rise of AI heighten our vulnerability to cyberattacks. These risks grow exponentially with the algorithmic power of quantum computing, potentially leading to an existential crisis if not managed proactively. Implementing a Post-Quantum Cryptographic Bill of Materials is essential, enabling resilient data security and safe and ethical quantum and binary computing application. Let’s act now to mitigate these threats and harness quantum computing for humanity's betterment. Cybersecurity Congress room
