QuSecure Selected to Present at IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference Next Week

Co-founder and Chief Product Officer Rebecca Krauthamer to Present on Quantum Ethics in Security on June 6

SAN MATEO, Calif. — June 2, 2022 — QuSecure™, Inc., an innovator in post-quantum cybersecurity, (PQC), today announced that it has been selected to present at the IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference next week, being held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.

Company Co-founder and Chief Product Officer (CPO) Rebecca Krauthamer will present “Quantum Ethics in Security” as part of the program’s Track 2: Transforming Technology, Sustainable Technology, in Room 30CD at 1:15 pm PDT on June 6. Krauthamer is a strong advocate of building ethical technology and bringing awareness to cybersecurity and data privacy rights. Last year, she co-authored a report with a team of experts from the World Economic Forum on Quantum Computing Governance Principles, which was aimed at providing guidance to governments and organizations around policymaking for ethics-driven quantum computing development.

“I’m honored to speak with the current and future female leaders at IEEE’s conference,” said Krauthamer. “We all have a responsibility to proactively protect people’s basic right to data privacy. It is critical to understand both the incredible opportunities quantum computers will afford us as well as the immediate threat they pose to our data privacy.”

Launched in 2014, the mission of the IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference (IEEE WIE ILC) is to inspire, engage, and advance women in technology, whether in industry, academia, or government. The vision for the conference is to provide attendees with the opportunity to create communities that fuel innovation, facilitate knowledge sharing, and provide support through highly interactive sessions designed to foster discussion and collaboration. The IEEE WIE ILC focuses on providing leading-edge professional development for mid-level and senior-level women.

At QuSecure, Krauthamer heads product development for QuProtect, which provides quantum-resilient cryptography, anytime, anywhere and on any device.
