Title: Quantum safety

A distinguished panel of academics and industry experts will share their insights, experiences and industrial perspectives:
– Dr. Tommaso Gagliardoni – Cryptography expert at Kudelski Security
– Dr. Dimitar Jetchev – CTO and co-founder at Inpher
– Dr. Grégoire Ribordy – CEO and founder at ID Quantique
– Dr. Juan Troncoso-Pastoriza – Scientist at Laboratory for Data Security (LDS), EPFL
Moderated by Prof. Jean-Pierre Hubaux – Academic director at C4DT and Head of the Laboratory for Data Security (LDS), EPFL

Objectives
– Establish a common understanding of quantum terminologies, such as “quantum computing”, “quantum supremacy”, “quantum-safe cryptography”, “quantum cryptography.
– Understanding the concrete risks/dangers that quantum attacks pose to a company’s data security / cryptographic schemes and the timeline of such attacks.
– Raising awareness among leaders to prepare enterprises now for a secure future.

Format
3-hour panel discussion: 4 panelists and one moderator.
– Each panelist holds a 15-20 min talk on a selected topic and shares his/her insights.
– 45min discussion on submitted questions from partners.
– 45min open discussion with audience.
Is this for me?
The discussion will be tailored to non-experts of the C4DT community. However, some basic knowledge on cryptography will probably help you follow certain parts of the discussion. Where possible, use cases and practical industry challenges will be addressed. Please do not hesitate to extend this invitation to colleagues who could be interested in the event.
Will I be able to ask questions?
Yes, as a C4DT community member you have the possibility to send me your questions via email prior to the event. We will try to cover them during the panel discussions. The third hour will be dedicated to an open discussion between the audience (on site) and the panelists. Both discussions will be moderated by Prof. Jean-Pierre Hubaux. As a remote participant you will be able to post questions via Zoom’s Q&A functionality only.

Do I need to register for this event?
If you intent to access to event remotely, no registration is required. As a C4DT community member you will have received thw login information via the C4DT email. Please send me an email if this is not the case.
