October 2016 Education Session
Presented by Vancouver Security SIG, (ISC)² Vancouver Chapter, and ISSA Vancouver Chapter
Friday October 14th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Featured Presentation Topic:
Gentle Introduction to Quantum Cryptography and Computing for Laymen by Layman
Speaker: Peter Man, MSc, CISSP, CISA
Quantum physics is the key technology for enabling the semiconductor industry and IT revolution today. However, we are getting closer to the limit of Moore’s law and we have not yet exploited the full benefit of quantum physics in securing communication. The next revolution will definitely be leveraging advanced quantum phenomena such as quantum superposition, entanglement, etc. Peter will discuss how these phenomena can be utilized to build quantum computers for cracking RSA/ECC/DH algorithms and the use for quantum cryptography that is built on the fundamental law of physics. No assumption of quantum physics is required.
There are limited seats at this venue so you must RSVP to attend. If the session is fully booked you will only be offered an option to register for the waitlist.

Vancouver SecSIG, (ISC)² Vancouver Chapter, and ISSA Vancouver Chapter
The Vancouver Security Special Interest Group (SecSIG) and the (ISC)² Vancouver Chapter are unincorporated groups of professionals who work together to promote and support the information security profession. We operate purely on a volunteer basis, and do not charge membership or event fees. We hold joint meetings together with the ISSA Vancouver Chapter, as part of bringing the information security community in Vancouver together.
