The IT Pro Podcast: The DARQ side of security

We explore DARQ technologies, and their potential security implications

Title card for the podcast

While you may not be familiar with the tech industry’s latest acronym, DARQ, you’ve probably heard of its constituent components: distributed ledger, artificial intelligence, extended reality and quantum computing technology. Three of those four could be set to have a significant impact on the future of security, with possibilities including unbreakable encryption algorithms, AI-enhanced cyber attacks and much more.

In this week’s episode of the IT Pro Podcast, we’re joined by RSA CTO Dr. Zulfikar Ramzan to dig into the future of these technologies, and the effect they could have on cyber safety. We discuss why blockchain is the Betamax of distributed ledgers, the cost of a quantum attack, and why your next compliance officer might just be a robot.
