While some say quantum computers are still 5-10 years away, this timeframe may be shorter based on the recent news of Google reaching "quantum supremacy." Once quantum computers arrive, they will be able to tear down existing Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption protocols - resulting in the risk of a massive exposure of most of the data in use around the world today.
Not only is data at risk in this likely future, but there is also signficant risk today from the efforts to record highly sensitive information with the hopes of removing its encryption at a later date. This "harvest today, decrypt tomorrow" scenario has become a new exploit by today's threat actors to hold data until they have the computing power to easily and quickly break the encryption.
