IQT Quantum Cybersecurity New York October 25-27 is the first international conference and exhibition focused on QUANTUM CYBERSECURITY. Nine vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panels and talks, curated by IQT Research’s Lawrence Gasman, will provide attendees with a deep understanding on the current impact of quantum technology on cybersecurity and how it will evolve. Cybersecurity is of growing importance to business, government, and the intelligence/military in a world of hacking and geopolitical instability. IQT Fall 2022 will be primarily “in person” (limited virtual participation available) to ensure maximum networking and discussion missing from larger hybrid events.
(Exclusive sponsorships available for each of the 9 vertical topics as well as the overall sponsorship for the entire event: apply to firstname.lastname@example.org)
