Recorded on May 29, 2024 | Free webinar series

Quantum computing is an approach to computing based on encoding and processing information using the laws of quantum physics. Over the past decade, this technology has been moving out of the lab and into the world. As it does so, organizations have been engaged in both exploring its adoption and preparing for its cybersecurity implications.

In this webinar, Dr. Travis Scholten of IBM Quantum will provide an overview of quantum computing, its potential applications in the financial sector, and how organizations can assess the benefits and risks of this technology.

Join us to explore the latest in cybersecurity education and risk management techniques, which can help create a stronger security mindset among business customers.
