Synopsis: 

As we move into the new era of quantum computing, there are new cybersecurity challenges and opportunities that emerge such as the development and design of secure systems, impact on cryptography, and the protection of information systems.  The Quantum Information Science Technology (QIST) workforce now involves practitioners trained in a wide variety of disciplines such as computer science, engineering, chemistry, and materials science, who are working together often in multidisciplinary teams to pioneer revolutionary approaches to computing, simulation, sensing, timing, and networking.  This webinar, held in observance of World Quantum Day on April 14th, will examine the cybersecurity implications of QIST and the impact on education, training, and the workforce.
