Analysing the Quantum Threat - a perspective from the industry


The risk behind complex and novel technologies is inherently difficult to analyze. Fundamental concepts of the technology have to be understood, broken down and assessed according to one’s own threat landscape. In this talk, we will look at the premises of the Quantum Threat, its inflation and subsequent operational relevance. The 2 main scenarios are instanced by mapping them to the MITRE ATT&CK Matrix, looking at possible attack paths and using aqualitayive risk rating methodology.
