Cryptography is central to how organizations keep their data secure, and existing methods have served them well for a long time. There has been little reason to question the foundation of our data security practices, but as technology changes, new possibilities emerge.
Large-scale data breaches are certainly becoming more common, and that’s made security a front burner issue for most IT teams. Beyond that, however, a more fundamental evolution is coming in the form of quantum computing, and the capabilities associated with that pose a significant threat to how federal government agencies encrypt their data.
This Insight is designed to help IT decision-makers understand what quantum computing represents for the future of cryptography and how data security practices will need to respond.
