Presentation

Why (and How) You Should Make Your FinTech Security Quantum Safe Today

This talk gives an introduction to the emerging quantum computing threat to the cybersecurity standards that global financial institutions, as well as governments and businesses, rely on today. It explains the next-generation security options already becoming available that provide resistance to quantum computing attacks, and it includes a demo of those options in use to secure an online banking connection against current and future attacks. The banking connection shown over the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol is used to secure most Internet traffic and depends on cryptography that is unbreakable by conventional computers but is vulnerable to attack by quantum computers. This talk explains the impact of this widespread threat on the financial industry specifically and provides recommendations for mitigation.

What You’ll Learn

  • Quantum computers attacks on financial institutions (and other parties) are widely expected to be possible by 2026, and one type of attack places intercepted data at risk today.
  • It is already possible and necessary to begin transitioning to efficient quantum-safe security options for critical infrastructure.
  • Quantum risk assessment and transition planning should be part of the FinTech mandate, to reduce liability.
