Preparing for the security threat posed by quantum computers should soon become a top priority for insurers: Aite-Novarica Group
Boston, MA (Aug. 3, 2021) – Quantum technology is poised to fundamentally impact the way financial institutions do business. Data protection, risk modeling, portfolio management, and select processes enhanced by artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions may look very different in a quantum world. In a new research report, Quantum Technology and Insurance, research and advisory firm Aite-Novarica Group provides an overview of quantum theory, applications in financial services, recommendations for insurers incorporating quantum strategy into their five-year IT roadmaps, and select quantum vendor profiles.
“Innovative insurers and banks should strongly consider developing quantum literacy,” said Tiffany Wang, Chief of Staff and author of Aite-Novarica Group’s new report. “Financial institutions that incorporate quantum readiness into their five-year IT strategy roadmaps stand to benefit from greater customer trust and may even achieve a key competitive edge over their peers.”
Among the key findings of the reports are:
