Securing cyberspace from attacks has become a critical need in the 21st century to enable people, enterprises and governments to interact and conduct their business. With the imminent arrival of quantum computing and ongoing advances in technology, cyber security experts are needed to develop new techniques to continue to maintain the security of our digital information.
