The Quantum Threat to Banking – New York Event

May 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Emerging technologies are harnessing quantum effects for more powerful computation, more secure communication, better sensing, and many more applications yet to be discovered. However, quantum computers will break the foundations of our current information and communication systems, including cloud computing, the internet, and payment systems. Is your organization ready? Will your systems collapse? Will your current information assets be compromised in the future when quantum computers become available? Do your vendors have this under control? What can organizations do to protect against the quantum threat in a non-disruptive, cost-effective and timely manner? 

Join Global Risk Institute, Columbia Business School, and NYU Tandon School of Finance and Risk Engineering, as Michele Mosca discusses the impact of Quantum Computing on financial organizations.

Michele Mosca

Michele Mosca obtained his doctorate in Mathematics in 1999 from the University of Oxford on the topic of Quantum Computer Algorithms. His research interests include quantum computation and cryptographic tools that will be safe against quantum technologies. He is globally recognized for his drive to help academia, industry and government prepare our cyber systems to be safe in an era with quantum computers.

He is co-founder of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, a Professor in the Department of Combinatorics & Optimization of the Faculty of Mathematics, and a founding member of Waterloo’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. He is the co-founder and Director of CryptoWorks21, an NSERC-funded training program in quantum-safe cryptography. He co-founded the ETSI-IQC workshop series in Quantum-Safe Cryptography which brings together a broad range of stakeholders working toward globally standardized quantum-safe cryptography. In 2015, he co-founded evolutionQ Inc. in order to support organizations as they evolve their quantum-vulnerable systems and practices to quantum-safe ones.
