Attackers are gearing up and quantum computers are coming; we just don’t know when. Hence, it’s time to up your game in securing your systems.
We’ve known for a long time that quantum computers are under development. Such computers may solve fundamental problems in the simulation of chemical reactions at the atomic and molecular levels, targeted design of medications, or innovative materials. But we’ve also known for a long time that such computers have the potential to crack many of the security techniques, especially of conventional cryptography, that are in use today.
