Quantum Cryptography A Solution for Secure Data Transmission
(InformationAge) Dr. Andrew Shields, Cambridge Research Laboratory of Toshiba Research Europe, believes quantum computing will render much of today’s encryption unsafe, but Quantum Cryptography could be the solution. Unlike other existing security solutions, quantum cryptography is secure from all future advances in mathematics and computing, including from the number-crunching abilities of a quantum computer.
Europe’s IT decision-makers are fully aware of the need to counteract these threats, with the latest research from Toshiba revealing data security to be a top three IT investment priority for over half (52 per cent) of businesses. Yet as we head into 2019, many continue to fall behind in keeping informed and ahead of cyber-security trends and developments.
