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.

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.

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.

This three-day workshop 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.

All three workshop days are free of charge and open to those who wish to learn more about how we are all affected by the fast-evolving race to build a quantum computer.
