The race is on to commercialize the first large-scale quantum computer and it's going to happen faster than we think. Quantum computing promises great benefits in areas such as physics, chemistry, engineering and business. This emerging technology will make many existing encryption methods vulnerable to attack. With all its potential, quantum computing therefore also poses significant threats and challenges to our already fragile landscape of privacy and security.

Data Protection Beyond the Desktop. Is Your Mobile Strategy Safe?

In order to comply, organizations need to implement strong future-proofing policies, procedures and processes to protect themselves. They face not only the risk of heavy fines but also added risks of reputational damage and potential loss of consumer confidence.

So, what does this mean for businesses with thousands of devices to manage? Data protection doesn't stop at the desktop - the law is just as applicable to mobile and IoT devices. Most organizations manage an array of corporate and personally-owned devices across the world that are authorized to connect to the corporate network, making it difficult to manage and prevent security breaches. It's just as important to protect mobile and IoT devices as corporate data can be accessed through them.
