Catarina Bastos, Account Manager for Defence, Deimos Engenharia, will speak on “Quantum Cybersecurity at Government Agencies” at IQT The Hague March 13-15.
Catarina Bastos graduated in Physics/Applied Mathematics – Astronomy by the Faculty of Sciences in University of Oporto in 2005. She completed the PhD degree in Physics with the thesis: “Phase Space Noncommutativity: Formalism and Applications” by Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) in Lisbon in 2010. During her PhD and Pos-Doc work in Instituto Plasmas e Fusão Nuclear (IPFN) she became expert in models using quantum mechanics to explain different physical aspects of the universe. She had published 28 papers: 20 in international peer review journals and 8 in conference proceedings.
In February 2017 she started her adventure in Deimos Engenharia, in the GNSS Business Unit. She worked in several ESA projects related with precise orbital determination. In 2019 she became Project Manager in GNSS for the development of a space GNSS receiver, G3STAR. She was also responsible for the commercial activities and business development in GNSS in Lisbon during that period. In 2021 she has become a Bid and Project Manager in Secure Quantum Communications projects in Deimos, leading a pioneer project for the European Defence, DISCRETION, where an SDN enabled by QKD shall be developed jointly with Spain, Austria and Italy. She is also co-coordinating through Deimos the national road map in quantum networks that shall be implemented in Portugal with the National Security Office, the Portuguese Defence and several research institutes and companies. In 2022 she has been assigned the Account Manager for Defence projects in Deimos Engenharia.
IQT The Hague 2023 is the eighth global conference and exhibition in the highly successful Inside Quantum Technology series.
The Hague event will focus on Quantum Communications and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40 panels and talks from over 80 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding on state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet as well as the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity.
Sandra K. Helsel, Ph.D. has been researching and reporting on frontier technologies since 1990. She has her Ph.D. from the University of Arizona.
