Next-Gen Cybersecurity

Are you ready for post-quantum cryptography?

It’s coming: The next generation of cryptography combined with the impacts of national policy debates will change how we implement cybersecurity across sectors. The specter of a quantum computer coming into existence recently led NSA to call for the post-quantum-cryptography standard to be considered for implementation. Government policymakers and industry leaders are engaged in a critical debate to find the balance between privacy, security and national and international cybersecurity standards. These things will affect everybody’s practice and budgets. These factors promise to complicate the tremendous challenges cryptologists face today in making our data both safe and user friendly. Get prepared for what’s just around the corner through a lens focused on the challenges cryptographers face today by joining a discussion with cybersecurity leaders from industry, government, military and academia.

Online registration is currently closed.  If you are interested in attending the event we will take walk-in registration at the door Thursday morning.
