The advent of quantum computers is a sci-fi fan’s dream come true. These computers possess incredible, transformative power, enough to outdo today’s super high-performance computers. For example, the Canadian company Xanadu Quantum Technologies reports that Borealis, their quantum computer in the cloud, “can perform a single task 50 million times faster than a classical computer.”
Like most technology, this massive advance in computing power is a double-edged sword. While quantum computing can help solve some of humanity’s more complex problems, it also paves the way for increased risk at the hands of bad actors—and experts think that quantum computers could be functional by 2030.
Businesses and government agencies that don’t adequately prepare will find themselves vulnerable to data breaches and other cybersecurity threats. In this e-book, we will explore the various aspects of the quantum threat, and then we’ll explain how to position your organization to stay ahead of the curve.
