Today’s biggest threat: cyber-attacks

Our world is more connected than ever before – and strongly governed by the data economy. With the possibility of someone across the globe hacking into your most valuable information at any time, cybersecurity is paramount.

But technology is evolving rapidly, and with it, the emergence of ‘super computers’ that possess incredible processing power. How do we protect ourselves in the face of this insurgence?

Prepare for the post-quantum era with a high-profile panel

In this Monash Tech Talks event, our internationally-renowned cybersecurity specialists will explore how we can stay secure during a time when scalable quantum computers are readily available.

Getting you ahead of the trend, our acclaimed panel will answer questions such as:

  • Why is quantum computing a major threat to modern cybersecurity?
  • What are the biggest challenges in building large-scale quantum computers?
  • What are the risks and opportunities in a post-quantum era?
  • How can organisations design and deploy quantum-safe schemes for the future?
