As the world enters a post-COVID “New Normal” defined by ever-greater levels of digitization, ensuring data security is imperative.
In the year 2020, a wave of highly damaging cyberattacks has struck both multinational brands and governments across the world, costing billions of dollars, leaking embarrassing materials, and compromising valuable intellectual property. Unsurprisingly, the global market for cybersecurity services is estimated at a sprawling USD 66.86bn with rapid compound annual growth projected well into the future.
In that light, the ongoing development of quantum computing presents both technological breakthroughs in processing power as well as posing serious challenges to information security. Drawing from the field of quantum mechanics, quantum computing promises to exponentially increase the processing power of the modern supercomputer. Quantum computers are projected to have a substantial impact across a broad range of areas: science and medicine, finance, AI development, and R&D among others.
Experts believe that in the not-so-distant future, quantum computers will easily penetrate even the most robust cybersecurity systems. Today’s most expensive and sophisticated cyber defense may be rendered effectively useless in the face of the quantum computing revolution. As the MIT Technology Review points out: “Any business or government planning to store data for decades should be thinking now about the risks the technology poses, because the encryption they use to protect it could later be compromised.” To make matters worse, MIT sounded the alarm that using new set of decryption algorithms, "a quantum computer could break 2048-bit RSA encryption in 8 hours."
On top of keeping up with traditional international cybersecurity standards, KOGI understands and prioritizes developing post-quantum data encryption which can best safeguard critical information. To keep up with both present and future cyber challenges, KOGI’s proprietary CEO System utilizes uni-directional "neural-network" calculations to exponentially increase the complexity of how data is encrypted, making it impossible to reverse calculate and engineer encrypted codes back to the original content, irrespective of computational speed- e.g. quantum computing-assisted cyberattacks.
