How Quantum Computing Will Impact Cybersecurity

The field of quantum computing is still in its early stages, but the technology will be impacting many industries much sooner than most people realize. Quantum computers are able to process much larger data sets and perform much more complex computations than even the world’s most powerful supercomputers relying on classical computing. They can solve problems previously considered impossible due to their complexity – and they do it almost instantaneously. When Google developed its first quantum computer in 2019, the machine was able to solve a calculation in just over 3 minutes that would have taken the world’s fastest supercomputer at the time 10,000 years to solve.

With such tremendous computing power, quantum computers are able to identify patterns and relationships in massive volumes of data. When applied to commercial sectors, this can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from streamlining the global logistics supply chain, to helping medical researchers bring life-saving pharmaceuticals to market faster, to building better predictive models for forecasting complex problems like climate change. Experts estimate that within a decade, quantum computing will be able to accelerate solutions to a range of problems in numerous industries.

However, not everything that quantum computing ushers in
