Why attend the Executive Track?
Business leaders worldwide are increasingly taking concrete steps to prepare for the quantum era: protecting business continuity, the resilience of critical cyber systems, and the integrity and confidentiality of information assets.
The Executive Track on 5 November is designed for business executives, including CEOs, CTOs and CISOs, and will outline the state of the quantum threat and quantum risk management.
Attendees will learn how quantum computers are poised to disrupt the current technology landscape, and approaches being taken by business and governments to managing the quantum risk to information assets, cyber systems and business continuity, now and into the future of quantum computing.
More precisely, this one day event will be an opportunity to:
Get an executive level overview of quantum computing, why it is important and how it will disrupt the IT landscape:
Why attend the Technical Track?
The Technical Track on 6-7 November is designed for members of the business, government and research communities with a stake in cryptographic standardization on a global scale. This is a unique opportunity to engage with key members of the quantum-safe cryptography community, participate in practical and scientific discussions and move towards a standardized approach to quantum-safe cryptographic solutions.
The workshop will showcase both the most recent requirements from industry and government, and cutting-edge potential solutions coming out of the most recent research.
A range of research and commercial presentations will focus on state-of-the-art quantum key distribution and the new encryption algorithms that will protect the world's communications. Some of the next-generation standards development work currently in progress at ETSI and other international standards organizations will be reviewed.
Our goal is to identify and give focus to further research and development on quantum-safe cryptography and its application.
Additionally, poster sessions will be shown during the technical track's networking breaks.
The 7th ETSI/IQC Quantum Safe Cryptography Workshop organized by ETSI in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) will take place on 05 to 07 November 2019 at the Amazon Headquarters in Seattle, US.
The event will start with an Executive Track on 5 November and will be followed by an in depth Technical Track on 6-7 November 2019.
ETSI, in partnership with ERTICO, organized the seventh ITS CMS Plugtests™ event which took take place from 4 to 8 November 2019. This event was hosted by ETSI at Sophia Antipolis, France.
