Increasingly powerful computers are making it easier to hack big corporations and even democratic elections, explains encryption expert Vikram Sharma. Quantum computing will accelerate the threat. The solution, he says, is “to fight quantum with quantum.” As well as describing two quantum solutions for cybersecurity, Sharma provides an encryption primer. getAbstract recommends this informative, easy-to-grasp talk to the layperson interested in the future of cybersecurity.

About the Speaker

Vikram Sharma is a cybersecurity expert working to improve quantum computing encryption.



Corporate giants like Target, Yahoo and JPMorgan Chase have suffered costly cyberattacks. An increase in such attacks could hurt the global economy. Hackers have hit public agencies as well. From 2012 to 2014, cyberthieves stole sensitive data from 22 million employees of the US Office of Personnel Management. And cybercriminals are targeting democracy. State-sponsored hackers have worked to influence elections in several nations.

Quantum computing is a young science that “leverages microscopic properties of nature.” In just a few years, the science will make cracking today’s security systems easy. But quantum computing will also provide...
