Looking for an edge, cybersecurity firms spend big on quantum computing

by Chris Bing • 4 years ago

A small group of academics and security contractors are experimenting with quantum computing technologies to counter and attribute cyberattacks. Last week, D-Wave, a leader in the nascent field of quantum computing, sold a state-of-the-art computer system to Temporal Defense Systems, or TDS, a cybersecurity firm led predominately by former law enforcement executives. Former FBI Deputy Assistant Director James Burrell is TDS’ chief technology officer and operations chief Kristy Kottis previously served as supervisor to the FBI’s Threat Response Squad of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
