8:30 am - 9:00 am - Continental Breakfast

9:00 am - 9:30 am - Opening Remarks

  • Host: Lyle Paczkowski, Senior Technology Strategist, Sprint

9:30 am - 10:00 am - Keynote Speaker: Gen. Harry Raduege (ret.), United States Air Force

  • Title: National Security Implications of Quantum Computing

10:00 am - 10:30 am - Dr. Shohini Ghose, Professor, Physics / Computer Science, Wilfrid Laurier University

  • Title: Quantum Physics: Opportunities and Challenges

10:30 am - 10:45 am - Coffee Break

10:45 am - 11:15 am - Dr. Atefeh (Atty) Mashatan, Director, Cybersecurity Research Lab, Ryerson University

  • Title: Security in a Post-Quantum Era: Cryptography Implications

11:15 am - 12:00 pm - Davide Venturelli, Senior Scientist, USRA Quantum Computing Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, NASA Academic Mission Service

  • Title: Emergent Technologies for Computing beyond Moore's Law

  • Topic: Davide will discuss the worldwide efforts to develop machines that can circumvent the limitations of traditional digital computer architectures, and what are the algorithms and applications that are under investigation, with a special focus on optimization and AI problems of industrial and government interest.

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - Lunch

12:15 pm - 1:00 pm - Prof. Gideon Samid, Chief Technology Officer, BitMint

  • Title: Quantum Randomness: A Promising, yet Dangerous Equalizer

  • Description: This session will focus on today's ciphers which are vulnerable to advanced cryptanalytic attacks. The new technology of Trans-Vernam ciphers builds security on unassailable quantum randomness which is a big win for public privacy. However, it is an effective hideaway for criminals and terrorists. This is an altogether global equalizer with hard-to-imagine implications.

1:00 pm - 1:45 pm - Keynote Speaker: Dr. Robert Sutor, Vice President, Quantum Computing, IBM

  • Title: The Trajectory of Quantum: From Quantum Ready to Quantum Advantage

1:45 pm - 2:45 pm - Kristopher Byrne, Senior Research Scientist, NXM Labs and Brian Goncalves, Senior Researcher, Cybersecurity Research Lab, Ryerson University

  • Title: A Roadmap for Agile Post-Quantum Security

  • Topic Description: This talk will introduce an elegant mathematical solution to the complex problem of post-quantum security that is not computationally intensive and can be deployed now to protect existing computers, IoT devices, communication systems and critical infrastructure from future quantum attacks.

  • Demo: Quantum-safe consumer messaging app demonstration

2:45 pm - 3:15 pm - Christian Weedbrook, CEO/Founder, Xanadu

  • Title: Quantum Computing and Artificial Intelligence

3:15 pm - 3:30 pm - Coffee Break

3:30 pm - 4:00 pm - Jay Fallah, CTO, Co-Founder, NXM Labs

  • Title: Autonomous Quantum Security

  • Topic: This talk examines how fully distributed, peer-to-peer networks of autonomous devices can manage their own security without human intervention and defend themselves against future quantum attacks.

4:00 pm - 4:45 pm - Roundtable Discussion

  • Topic: Y2Q threat
  • Moderator: Lyle Paczkowski, Senior Technology Strategist, Sprint
  • Gen. Harry Raduege, Gen. Harry Raduege (ret.), United States Air Force

8:30 am - 9:00 am – Continental Breakfast

9:00 am - 9:15 am - Opening Remarks

  • Host: Josef Zankowicz, NXM Labs, COO

9:15 am - 10:00 am - Keynote Speaker: Lyle Paczkowski, Senior Technology Strategist, Sprint

  • Title: The challenges of end-to-end security in a Tier1 mobile network

10:00 am - 10:30 am - Jim Flack, Sr. Manager Operator Relations, ARM

  • Title: Building a More Secure IoT: Arm’s Platform Security Architecture
  • Topic: A holistic approach to creating a more secure connected device, relevant to silicon manufacturers, OEM’s and enterprises operating connected devices at scale. This approach, or process, leverages analysis of threat models from a representational set of IoT use-cases and a set of hardware and firmware specifications. These specs act as a checklist for System on Chip (SoC) designers and as the technical contract between software, firmware and hardware vendors.

10:30 am - 10:45 am - Coffee Break

10:45 am - 11:45 am - Jay Fallah, CTO, NXM Labs

  • Title: Autonomous Security: Enabling Secure and Trusted IOT Deployments
