How quantum computing can change cybersecurity

Quantum computing still sounds like the realm of science fiction. The promise is that quantum computing can perform calculations more than a hundred million times faster than the fastest current supercomputer. This will have hugely positive implications for solving the big problems in science.

But it has a darker side effect: Encryption that would take thousands of years to crack using conventional computers could be sent in minutes or even seconds. The implication today is that adversaries are currently able to suck up and store data, which they can attack with a quantum computer for years to come. Some commercial and personal data will remain sensitive well into the future. So it’s worth future-proofing data to withstand quantum computing attacks.
