Jörg-Peter Elbers explains how to protect data communication against quantum threats at GIS2021

Global Innovation Summit presentation will explore the latest solutions harnessing PQC and QKD to safeguard critical information

  • Speaker: Jörg-Peter Elbers, SVP, advanced technology, ADVA
  • Topics: Cybersecurity in the quantum age
  • When: Tuesday, May 18, 2.30 p.m. CET
  • Where: Global Innovation Summit: Exploring New Perspectives (virtual event):

Large-scale quantum computers are expected to become a reality in the not-too-distant future. At this point, traditional encryption technology will be insufficient to protect sensitive data communication from hackers. That’s why organizations and governments across the world are looking into quantum-resistant cryptography to safeguard their critical information against tomorrow’s quantum-enabled attacks.

In this virtual session, Jörg-Peter Elbers will discuss how to ensure security despite new quantum technology or by harnessing it. He’ll explore post-quantum cryptography (PQC), quantum key distribution (QKD) and explain how the latest encryption solutions can protect data communication against future threats today.
