Itan Barnes is part of Deloitte's cyber risk services team which helps companies to mitigate the quantum risk. Itan emphasizes the urgency of preparing company and infrastructure.

Mr. Barmes is a cybersecurity expert with a strong focus on cryptography. His focal area of interest is the impact of quantum information science on cyber-security e.g., quantum computation, post-quantum cryptography, quantum communication etc.

Mr. Barmes points out that his experience shows a lack of awareness in most companies. And the majority of the companies that are aware of the problem perceive it to be a challenge that needs to be solved in the future. The magnitude of the problem and the urgency to start mitigating the risk is largely underestimated.

 

Work with the PQC experts

We at Utimaco have the honor to work with some of the leading researchers in quantum cryptography, who use our Hardware Security Modules.

The ultimate goal is to prepare:

  • the security infrastructure of the digital economy,

  • algorithms and

  • HSMs in unison for the post-quantum era.

New call-to-action

In the context of Utimaco’s Conferences and Applied Crypto Symposiums, we had the chance to interview leading researchers, innovation drivers and regulators, and to dive into their views and research agenda on post-quantum cryptography and the future of cryptography in general. 

The series includes interviews with leading innovators at NIST, Diebold-Nixdorf, Samsung, Entrust Datacard,  the Institute of Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, the Central Bank of Lithuania, the Cyber Risk Service at Deloitte and more.
