John Prisco; President and Chief Executive Officer, Safe Quantum Incorporated; will speak at IQT NYC 2023 By Sandra Helsel posted 14 Jul 2023 John Prisco; President and Chief Executive Officer, Safe Quantum Incorporated; will speak at IQT NYC 2023. Panel 3.1: The Case for Quantum Cybersecurity in the Enterprise Throughout his 30-year career, John Prisco has demonstrated success driving revenue growth, implementing operational excellence, and bringing companies such as Triumfant, Penn Access, GeoVantage and Ridgeway Systems to successful exits. His depth of experience in telecommunications, cybersecurity and quantum physics are ideally suited to lead Quantum Xchange and its customers, partners, investors, and employees through the emerging era of quantum computing and the future of secure key exchange and encryption. His consulting work for Toshiba in Japan, Europe and the United States is a logical progression from his collaboration with Toshiba when he was CEO of Quantum Xchange. Prisco established a track record of success in the high-tech field first by founding Penn Access, a competitive local access carrier operating in Pittsburgh. Prisco also served as President and CEO of 2nd Century Communications, the nation’s first packet-based CLEC operating in 33 of the largest U.S. metropolitan areas. In 2001, Prisco became CEO of eLink Communications, a BLEC with over 300 multi-tenant buildings operating in New York City. In 2003, he became President and CEO of Ridgeway Systems & Software, a U.K.-based software company specializing in secure firewall traversal and acquired by Tandberg Incorporated in 2004. Prisco served as President and CEO of GeoVantage Inc., a location-based services aerial imaging company sold to John Deere at the end of 2005. Prior to joining Quantum Xchange, Prisco was CEO of Triumfant for 11 years. Triumfant was the first cybersecurity company to perfect anomaly detection techniques to detect and remediate advanced threats such as file-less attacks in memory. Recently Prisco signed a consulting agreement to represent Toshiba in the United States and Europe in their quantum key and quantum internet business areas. Prisco holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University and a Master of Science in the field of Quantum Optics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
