Quantum risk: the implications of quantum computing on cryptography & cyber insurance

Online event
Thursday, 13 April 2023
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (UK time)
    • Dr. Michele Mosca, CEO and Co-Founder, evolutionQ
    • Adelle Gruber, Class Underwriter, Brit Global Specialty
    • Ed Pocock, Senior Cyber Security Consultant, Gallagher Re
  • Cyber, & Technology

In this IIL cyber and technology webinar, Dr Michele Mosca introduces the latest Quantum Threat Timeline Report, written in partnership between evolutionQ and the Global Risk Institute, and shares his thoughts on what that means for security professionals, CROs, and cyber insurers. Michele discusses these risks, likely timelines and practical next steps with two experts at the heart of the cyber insurance space – Adelle Gruber and Ed Pocock.

Quantum computing used to be a 'one-day' technology. 'One-day' has become quite soon, and the technology is moving out of the lab into early commercial usage. Today anyone can get access to basic quantum computers via the Cloud. As a result, previously theoretical concerns around quantum computers’ ability to decrypt data are becoming much more real.

This webinar also discusses the arrival of quantum computers and how this will render many traditional encryption methods redundant.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the basics of quantum computing and the potential timelines
  • Understand why quantum computing is of relevance to encryption and cyber insurance
  • Understand the steps and considerations those involved in cyber insurance should be taking with respect to quantum computing

Chair: Paolo Cuomo, Director, Strategic Advisory, Gallagher Re
