The impact of quantum technologies on cyber security
Driven by a promise of revolutionary computing capability, significant industrial investment has brought quantum computing to the cusp of being a commercial reality. While this will enable a wide array of applications, this capability will also undermine the basic secure fabric upon which our entire digital economy is built.
Here we will discuss the impact of quantum computing on internet security and what steps are being taken around the world to address this threat. Quantum Key Distribution uses the same technology as quantum computers to provide a level of security guaranteed by the laws of physics. We will discuss the challenges that remain, how KETS and the community working to overcome them and the potential of a future quantum internet.

Dr. Jake Kennard
Technical Sales Director & Co-founder - KETS Quantum Security
With over a decade’s experience in applied quantum technologies and industrial research experience, Jake is an expert in quantum photonics and communications. A former senior post-doctoral researcher at the University of Bristol’s Quantum Engineering Technology Labs and member of the UK’s Quantum Communications Hub, Jake co-founded KETS Quantum Security in 2016. He has since led KETS partnership development and successfully secured and delivered several UK-funded projects developing applications of quantum technologies in cyber security applications.
Based in Bristol, UK, KETS Quantum Security build secure, integrated, communication systems using quantum states of light allowing dramatic performance advantages over conventional systems. They deliver unique chip-based solutions, based on technology developed over a decade at the University of Bristol, providing ultra-low size, weight and power without compromising performance. KETS are active members of the quantum ecosystem in the UK, are an industrial partner of the Quantum Communications Hub and were named in 2018 as the UK’s Most Innovative Small Cyber Security Company at Infosec Europe.
