Everybody knows that when doing something as simple as sending an email, they are publicly sharing their personal data. Yet, most people don’t care. However, as long as every journalist, every judge, every CEO and every police officer uses email, we must make sure that this data is secured. Today securing data online has become much easier with end-to-end encrypted tools such as Tutanota.

However, what follows in the wake of quantum computers? How will we make sure that the data secured today will remain secure when quantum computers can break today’s encryption in a matter of days? This discussion panel explores why we all need encryption and how good our chances are at outrunning quantum computers.
