Trevor Rudolph, Vice President for Global Digital Policy & Regulation at Schneider Electric, is a IQT the Hague Speaker
In April 2024, the IQT The Hague conference will feature Trevor H. Rudolph, Vice President for Global Digital Policy & Regulation at Schneider Electric. With his extensive experience in cybersecurity, technology policy, and regulatory affairs, Rudolph brings a critical perspective on the intersection of quantum technology with global policy and regulation.
At Schneider Electric, Rudolph directs the corporation’s technology policy and regulatory affairs strategy across North America, Europe, and Asia. This role involves navigating complex regulatory landscapes and shaping strategies that align with technological advancements, including quantum technology’s implications for cybersecurity and digital infrastructure.
Rudolph’s background in government service, specifically as the Chief of the Cyber and National Security Unit at the White House, provided him with in-depth experience in dealing with critical national security issues related to cyber threats. This experience is particularly relevant in the context of quantum technology, which promises to revolutionize cybersecurity practices.
As a two-time winner of the Federal 100 Award, Rudolph’s contributions to the field have been widely recognized. His recent appointment to the DOE-NARUC Cybersecurity Advisory Group, where he helps develop recommendations for cybersecurity baselines for electric distribution utilities, further underscores his expertise in this area.
Rudolph’s role as an advisor to global policymakers involves crafting technology policy that balances the interests of consumers and industry. This is especially crucial in the rapidly evolving field of quantum technology, where regulatory frameworks must adapt to keep pace with technological advancements.
His educational background, with a Bachelor of Arts in Government from William & Mary and a Master of Arts in International Business and Policy from Georgetown University, provides him with a solid foundation in government and international business strategies.
At the IQT The Hague conference, Rudolph is expected to share insights into how quantum technology intersects with global digital policy and regulation, using his work at Schneider Electric as an example. His presentation will likely cover the challenges and opportunities of integrating quantum technologies within existing regulatory frameworks, the impact of quantum computing on cybersecurity and national security, and the role of global policymakers in fostering a secure and innovative quantum technology ecosystem.
IQT The Hague 2024 is the Netherlands’ fifth global conference and exhibition. The Hague is a Quantum Technology Event focusing on Quantum Networking and Quantum Security. Ten vertical topics encompassing more than 40-panel talks from over 100 speakers will provide attendees with a deep understanding of state-of-the-art developments of the future quantum internet and the current impact of quantum-safe technologies on cybersecurity and quantum computers.
The conference brings together corporate management, entrepreneurs, end users, technology providers, infrastructure partners, researchers, and investors working on current developments. IQT The Hague is organized by 3DR Holdings, IQT Research, QuTech, QIA (Quantum Internet Alliance), and Quantum Delta NL, who will bring leading organizations and professionals together in this important event. The April conference is “in-person” to ensure maximum networking and discussion at the Postillion Hotel & Convention Centre in The Hague.
