Quantum Computing for Finance & Cybersecurity

Get a good understanding of quantum computing and cybersecurity

About the course

What is quantum computing and what’s the potential impact on financial services? What are the cyberthreats that arise on traditional cybersecurity systems because of quantum computing?

Our expert, Vishal Shete, Director at Terra Quantum will walk you through the topic of quantum computing, and its impact on financial services. We will be mainly focusing on the intersection between quantum computing and cybersecurity, and specifically, explore how quantum computing poses a threat to traditional cybersecurity measures that rely on hard computational problems.

Join us on this short course on THINK – The Netflix of Fintech, to gain the knowledge in the current state of the field and the challenges that need to be addressed for quantum computing to reach its full potential.

Course Content

Vishal Shete, the Director of Strategy at Terra Quantum, will talk about the company’s recent success in raising funds and having a strong scientific team in quantum technology.
In this chapter, we will be discussing quantum computing and its impact on financial services. Quantum computing can solve some of the most complex problems in society, including those in financial services, such as optimisation of collateral and portfolios, liquidity buffer, and asset selection in securitised products. Quantum technology has a significant impact on the financial services industry, enabling the optimisation of the allocation of capital while understanding and managing the risk of allocating this capital to different actors within the ecosystem.
In this chapter, we will be discussing the intersection between quantum computing and cybersecurity. Specifically, we will explore how quantum computing poses a threat to traditional cybersecurity measures that rely on hard computational problems, such as prime number factorisation. We will also examine how quantum computing can be used to develop new cryptography standards and algorithms, as well as the progress being made in the quantum key distribution space.
This course has covered the basics of quantum computing and its potential applications in various industries, as well as, the impact of quantum computing on cybersecurity and the ways to mitigate those risks using quantum cryptography. Finally, we examined current state of the field and the challenges that need to be addressed for quantum computing to reach its full potential.

Latest THINK Courses


CFTE’s brand new online learning platform! THINK produces and delivers dozens of bite-sized courses which will allow you to get a good understanding and be constantly updated about everything concerning Fintech!

Disruptive technologies and innovations don’t come on their own. They bring significant transformations and challenges both in terms of culture, people, jobs, environment and governance. Therefore we believe these topics can’t be separated from one another. 

The courses offered on THINK have slightly different approaches to the topics. You’ll find evergreen foundational-level courses which will help you get a good understanding without any prior knowledge, but you’ll also find courses that explore the players in the respective ecosystems, courses that explore the regulations of a certain field and even courses that dive deep into specific companies’ way of operating!

THINK is meant for all those professionals who want to be kept up to date with the latest developments in these fields, but don’t necessarily have the time to go through countless articles or newspapers.

Technology is deeply transforming the way financial institutions do business and manage operations. Understanding these shifts will allow you to benefit from them, and not miss out on any potential opportunities for you and your organisation.

Users and customers nowadays are more aware than ever about the environmental and social impact of their choices, as a consequence companies are putting more attention on these topics even at the cost of reduced financial performances.

Digital Assets, Blockchain, Decentralisation and Web3 are still in a very early stage. They may reshape and revolutionise our current business models, therefore we believe it’s worth  paying special attention to the innovations they bring to the table.

Understanding how technology works, its potential and its limitations is essential to properly embrace it and leverage it. Even non-technical professionals need to get a comprehensive understanding of these tools, as they will have an increasingly important role in our lives.
