World Quantum Readiness Day

Are you ready?

Join security leaders from around the globe to address
the threat—and opportunity—of quantum computing.

On a day like today…

There’s a clock ticking down to the moment when quantum computers are powerful enough to break the encryption that enables security, trust, and privacy online.

We don’t know when it will hit zero. But we do know what will happen when it does.

A day to raise the alarm—and your defenses

created World Quantum Readiness Day to call global attention to the need to build and implement effective protections against quantum threats—and celebrate organizations that are leading the charge.

  • Join technology leaders, IT professionals and cybersecurity experts for a short, virtual summit.
  • Discuss current and future quantum-safe solutions and tackle the challenges of deploying them at scale.
  • Develop strategies to ensure you are adequately prepared for the post-quantum era.
  • Examine the innovative solutions and technologies that leaders within post-quantum cryptography are already developing.
  • Submit your advancements in quantum readiness for consideration by peers and experts in the inaugural Quantum Readiness Award.

The greatest disruption ever ignored

It’s not hyperbole to say that functional quantum computing presents an extinction-level threat to standard encryption—the literal foundation of digital security. And yet our 2024 State of Digital Trust Report found that a majority of even security-focused organizations say they aren’t ready.


Most enterprises report being unprepared for the threat posed by quantum computing.

402,000 PB / day

Globally, it is estimated that about 402,000 petabytes (PB) of data are created every day. Almost all of it is encrypted using standard RSA and ECC algorithms.

4000 | 2500 | 1125

  • 4000 logical qubits is the estimated processing power needed to crack RSA 2048-bit encryption.
  • 2500 logical qubits can weaken ECC 256-bit encryption.
  • 1,125 physical qubits  is the largest quantum computer to be announced publicly. It was unveiled in October of 2023.


Shor’s algorithm, the theoretical foundation for using quantum machines to crack RSA and other non-quantum encryption protocols, turns 30 years old in 2024.
