The NSA and the Quantum Computing Threat
In August 2015, the NSA, tasked with making and breaking the cryptography used for the nation’s most sensitive data, announced that companies should not make the move from RSA to Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC). Instead, they should plan to transition directly to new crypto algorithms that address the threat of quantum computing. Quantum computing will immediately break the most commonly used asymmetric crypto solutions in the market today – RSA and ECC. Attend this webinar to learn:
- What the NSA announcement means and how it impacts you
- What solutions are available today to protect against quantum attacks
- How a Quantum Safe Hybrid approach might be right for your company
- What questions to ask your cryptography and cloud service providers
