Helping organizations get post-quantum ready

Quantum Computing Hero

Quantum computing capabilities are exploding, causing disruption and incredible opportunities. But many technology and business leaders don’t understand the impact this technology will have on their businesses— the tremendous potential improvements and the risk to data and critical business processes.

Learn the two main aspects of quantum computing, the threat of post-quantum encryption and the promise of performance gain and increased ROI. Become crypto-agile with our quantum computing services and transform your business, avoid being disrupted, and enable experimentation with optimization solutions.

We’re helping organizations identify real use cases and value, assess their risk, and take action today to be post-quantum ready.

The Post-Quantum World Podcast 

The Post-Quantum World is a bi-weekly podcast that focuses on hot topics in quantum computing. Protiviti host and quantum lead, Konstantinos Karagiannis, and our guests explore quantum computing and its business impacts, benefits, and threats. Are you post-quantum ready?

Quantum computing takes advantage of the strange ability of subatomic particles to exist in more than one state at any time. Due to how the tiniest of particles behave, operations can be done much more quickly and use less energy than classical computers.

So, what does this mean for your business?

On the positive side, organizations should view quantum computing as a competitive advantage. New quantum-inspired algorithms will bring innovative solutions and approaches to product development. In addition, quantum computing can reduce time to market and optimize customer delivery.

On the flip side, quantum computing poses a significant risk to organizations. Researchers have shown how quantum computing could kill—or at least significantly weaken—current cryptography systems. A quantum computer will instantly render today’s security systems obsolete and break the encryption of sensitive data protected by such security systems. This puts your organization’s data, intellectual property (IP, patents, customer information, and data) at risk. Any information shared on public channels now or in the future will become vulnerable. For industries such as financial services and healthcare with significant regulatory requirements for data privacy and security, quantum will have a significant business, legal, and ethical impact.

Example areas of risk include:

  • Protecting government and military communications
  • Securing financial and banking transactions
  • Assuring the confidentiality of medical data and healthcare records
  • Safeguarding the storage of personal data in the cloud
  • Restricting access to confidential corporate networks

Post-Quantum encryption—new capabilities and algorithms that are resistant to attacks by both classical and quantum computers—to keep information assets secure even after a large-scale quantum computer is available, is underway. Leading organizations such as the Chicago Quantum Exchange are advancing research and education in the science and engineering of quantum information.

While quantum may still be several years away, organizations need to take steps to prepare today. Our quantum computing services are helping organizations with Post-Quantum Risk Assessments, Readiness workshops, and planning quantum road maps.

Key steps you should take today:

  • Select a quantum champion
  • Conduct a post-quantum readiness workshop
  • Identify quantum computing use cases, value to your organization, and potential risks
  • Chart a quantum course and multi-year road map. Some use cases like those using hybrid classical and quantum annealing may show advantage this year!
  • Start your journey and re-assess the road map every 6-12 months. Update the plan based on new quantum computing discoveries and developments, as well as changes in your business and industry
  • Be prepared! Be flexible!
