The Importance of Cybersecurity and Protecting Quantum Technology Assets
The Quantum Daily
October 13, 2020
In 2020 content published by the management consulting firm, McKinsey and Company, they stated that some companies may reap gains from quantum computing within five-years. There are some others that believe that this has already begun to happen. As quantum computing evolves and becomes more and more of a valuable business tool, it will undoubtably be brighter on the radar screen of cyber attackers and espionage agents. The theft and sale or use of the high-value information resulting from quantum computing problem solving will likely become a high value commodity on the black market and dark web. A cursory view of the current-state leads one to believe the industry needs to accelerate the evolution and use of cyber security protections (products and services) specifically addressing quantum technology platforms and operations.

Quantum Computing Concerns Cryptocurrencies
The Quantum Daily
January 29, 2020
"Quantum computing has started to cause some concern. The world of cryptocurrencies has been a buzz and for good reason! Recent breakthroughs in quantum computing have brought new life to a well-founded concern. It deals with quantum computers reaching an appropriate size/power to perform the massive number of calculations needed to compromise standard encryption capabilities in a reasonable period of time."

Quantum Computing: An Issue and a Solution

May 29, 2019
We’ve entered the quantum computer race! Quantum computing (QC) is in the headlines these days—and for a number of very good reasons. One business publication ran a headline that stated “Quantum Computing Could Change Everything.” You have to admit that does tend to test the shock absorbers of many executives and strategists in business. That (and a number of other headlines) really hit home to many business leaders and strategists, and my inbox began to fill. Given the magnitude of the reaction, perhaps it’s a good idea to explore this interesting and complicated emerging technology—and its potential implications.

Cryptocurrencies
Project Management Institute (PMI)
April 13, 2017
Cryptocurrencies are a new form of value transfer. Many are beginning to treat them as a digital currency that leverages encryption to regulate the digital monetary units and verify the transfer and movement of the funds/value. They operate totally independent of a central bank and are not backed by any nation – at least at this point. In January, the total value of cryptocurrencies in circulation exceeded the annual GDP of nearly 60 percent of countries in the world today. This new form of value/money/payment is growing and beginning to impact organizations around the world.

3 Webinars
The Issues and Opportunities of Quantum Technology

August 08, 2019
We have witnessed the dawn of a new era of advancing technology. In the mid-1990s, fundamental research exploded and placed the foundation for advancement as well as the commercialization of products. That was history and now the creation of another technology race, somewhat like what we experienced during the Internet era, but moving faster and larger in terms of potential $$$ dollars. Quantum technology has created a global race that has resulted in multiple commercial product lines that have already begun to see real-world business application. The forecasted culmination of just three areas of quantum technology could grow by 4 or 5 times by 2025. It sure looks like a sci-fi flick! Gartner projects that by 2023, 20% of organizations will be budgeting from quantum computing projects. Time to get ready.

Cognitive technologies (CT), machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are rapidly advancing around the world. Many analysts forecast that accelerated growth will likely continue for the next several years. The current leading-edge of research and rapid advancement will likely drive cognitive technologies and other related technologies to grow globally to over $12.5 trillion USD by 2030. That figure is hundreds of times the current market figure. Current application research into CT, ML and AI technologies clearly indicates that these technologies will become an important part of our daily life. As such, these technologies will be used in a wide area of day to day business as well as operational services and that they will likely impact program and project management.
