CISOs need to prepare 

Why CISOs Must Act Now


Preparing for Quantum-Resistant Cryptography



As quantum computing advances, traditional cryptographic systems are becoming increasingly vulnerable. With NIST set to release PQC standards later this year, the urgency for organizations to audit and prepare their cryptographic estates cannot be overstated.

The Problem

Current cryptographic methods, including RSA and ECC, will be rendered obsolete by quantum computers capable of breaking these encryptions in a fraction of the time. This poses a significant risk to data integrity and security across industries. Despite this looming threat, very few companies have conducted a thorough cryptographic audit of their infrastructure and software.

Why an Accurate Audit is Essential

An accurate cryptographic audit is the crucial first step in preparing for the quantum computing era. It helps identify vulnerable points in your cryptographic infrastructure, ensuring that all potential weaknesses are addressed before they can be exploited. Without a comprehensive audit, organizations risk overlooking critical vulnerabilities that could compromise their entire security framework.

The Need to Start Now

  • Immediate Risk Mitigation: Early identification of vulnerabilities allows for prompt remediation, reducing the risk of data breaches.
  • Strategic Planning: An audit provides the necessary insights to develop a strategic plan for transitioning to quantum-resistant algorithms.
  • Resource Allocation: Understanding your cryptographic landscape enables better allocation of resources towards areas that need the most attention.
  • Proactive Compliance: Staying ahead of regulatory requirements by proactively addressing cryptographic vulnerabilities can prevent future compliance issues and penalties.

By starting the audit process now, organizations can ensure a smoother transition to quantum-resistant cryptographic standards, safeguarding their data and maintaining trust with clients and stakeholders.

The Agitation

  • Data Breach Risks: The delay in transitioning to quantum-resistant algorithms increases the likelihood of data breaches.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Waiting until standards are released may result in non-compliance with future regulations, leading to fines and legal consequences.
  • Competitive Disadvantage: Organizations that procrastinate may fall behind more proactive competitors in securing their data infrastructure.
