Quantum computing is a fascinating, complex, highly technical, sometimes daunting to conceptualize technological breakthrough and driver of the future marketplace. So yes, the promise of quantum computing will happen and is happening. The question is how quantum will have an impact during a growth phase in which the capital expenditure capabilities and strategic concerns are driven more by governmental, governmental agency’s and, in our current climate, non-state actors’ (loosely tethered to nation-states for plausible deniability) ability to deploy adversarial methods only possible with next-generation quantum computational power.
Quantum computers that will render current encryption protections obsolete will not be developed for at least another 10 years, according to a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report. In spite of the significant amount of time between then and now, it also stresses the need for new cryptography
