(FinancialExpress) Information technology companies are clear about the cryptographic risks they face from quantum computing.
First, the cost of fighting future quantum computing threats/attacks will spiral out of control.
Second, data safely encrypted by today’s standards will become easy to decrypt in a quantum future. That means data pilfered today may be safe for now, but could become vulnerable once quantum computers arrive.
NOTE: A DigiCert visual is included illustrating When, Today and Tomorrow surveys asking respondents when quantum computing threats will become real.
