The 8th ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography workshop will be a virtual event. In light of the global COVID-19 situation and the related restrictions, the Programme Committee is reformatting the event into online sessions that will be available in a variety of formats.
As we increasingly rely on cyber technologies, we are ever more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. The cybersecurity tools at the centre of protecting our business functions, connected devices and information assets from cyber threats rely on cryptographic tools and standards that will be broken by emerging quantum technologies. Planning and preparing is critical. A new suite of tools resilient to quantum computers must be standardized and deployed in order to maintain the availability and reliability of cyber systems and protect confidentiality and integrity.
The ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography virtual event will be composed of a series of webinars and panel discussions that will bring together diverse participants in the quantum-safe cybersecurity community to facilitate the knowledge exchange and collaboration required to transition cyber infrastructures and business practices to make them safe in an era with quantum computers.
- A Virtual Executive Track debating on the state of the quantum threat and quantum risk management is organized in partnership with TelecomTV and will include much online content, interviews, status presentations and also several possibilities for the audience to interact with the expert speakers and panellists.
The track, designed for business executives, including CEOs, CTOs, CIOs and CISOs will run over 27 and 28 October 2020.
- A Virtual Technical Track composed of a series of selected and recorded technical presentations and poster sessions will be available for the audience around the same time frame.
The Programme Committee is currently calling for presentations and interested contributors should submit their contributions by 24 August 2020. Selected talks will be recorded and given virtually around the end of October.
