Europe takes steps towards confirming that the only way to effectively protect data and communications is by using quantum technologies

CAMBRIDGE, United Kingdom, 12 July, 2019 —On 13 June 2019, representatives from 7 member states of the European Union signed a declaration agreeing to jointly explore the development and deployment of quantum communications infrastructure (QCI) throughout the European Union within the next 10 years.

The focus is to ensure critical infrastructure and encryption systems are secured against cyber threats and to protect assets such as smart energy grids, air traffic control, banks, healthcare facilities and more from hacking. This is yet another signal that quantum technologies are here to stay, and that organisations and governments need to act now in order to secure essential digital systems.

CQC’s IronBridge™, is the world’s only certifiable and device independent quantum key generator and therefore provides a foundation for today’s networks and will be critical for the future development of quantum-secure infrastructure and communications systems.
