How to get there


Quantum computers will revolutionize many industries and will be powerful enough to break all commonly used public key cryptographic algorithms.

It is not a question of if your business will be affected, but when and how will quantum computers impact your day-to-day operations and product architecture.

We are thrilled to announce the third edition of our Applied Crypto Symposium, which welcomes thought leaders, academics and industry experts from around the globe to discuss:

  • The state of affairs in post-quantum research.
  • How organizations around the world are planning and preparing for a post-quantum society.
  • Challenges with post-quantum cryptography implementation.
  • The latest innovations sparked by the race to be quantum-safe in payments, automotive and blockchain applications.
  • Methodologies for making legacy systems quantum safe.

In the heart of Silicon Valley, spend the day at the iconic Mountain Winery with post-quantum experts to learn how to stay ahead of the curve (elliptic or otherwise). Hear from leading industry voices including Brian LaMacchia (Microsoft), Michele Mosca (Institute for Quantum Computing), Harsh Kupwade Patil and Marcos Simplicio (LG Electronics Mobile Research), Alan Panezic (ISARA), Sandy Carielli (Entrust Datacard), Louis Parks (SecureRF), as they explore the implementation of potential quantum safe algorithms and what the future holds for cybersecurity.

Will these new ciphers come to the rescue when the quantum computer falls into the hands of the wrong people?
