The 5th ETSI/IQC Workshop will take place in London (UK) on 13 – 15 September 2017. It will start with a special Executive Track on 13 September and will be followed by an in depth technical track on 14-15 September 2017.

As we increasingly rely on cyber technologies, we are ever more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. The cybersecurity tools at the centre of protecting our business functions and information assets from cyber threats rely on cryptographic tools and standards that will be broken by emerging quantum technologies.

A new suite of tools resilient to quantum computers must be standardized and deployed in order to maintain reliable cyber systems and protect confidentiality.

This three-day workshop will bring together diverse players in the quantum-safe cybersecurity community to facilitate the knowledge exchange and collaboration required to transition cyber infrastructures and business practices to make them safe in an era with quantum computers.

All three workshop days are free of charge and open to those who wish to learn more about how we are all affected by the fast-evolving race to build a quantum computer.
