The technical awareness of the legal system with regards to cloud technologies is increasing. The courts are beginning to take a useful, pragmatic and well balanced approach to evaluating the fairness and effectiveness of service provider T&C’s in meeting customer information security requirements and obligations. The concept of what is reasonable is central to this balance. It is also nothing new. This after all is what corporate diligence is all about. However, achieving this reasonableness requires real understanding of well known terms such as: vulnerability, threat, risk and exposure within a new technical landscape. A common question asked by senior management when faced with a technical issue of security is “well what really is the risk?” Unfortunately the expertise of most security professionals often doesn’t extend to the legal environment where these risks eventually manifest themselves. The difficulty in answering the question arises because a big part of the answer lies with a company’s ability to contract effectively with its customers. For a service provider, poor governance of cloud security issues equates to poor corporate diligence and a tangible risk to business reputation.

Practical Quantum Computing for Developers: Programming Quantum Rigs in the Cloud using Python, Quantum Assembly Language and IBM QExperience
Write algorithms and program in the new field of quantum computing. This book covers major topics such as the physical components of a quantum computer: qubits, entanglement, logic gates, circuits, and how they differ from a traditional computer. Also, Practical Quantum Computing for Developers discusses quantum computing in the cloud using IBM Q Experience including: the composer, quantum scores, experiments, circuits, simulators, real quantum devices, and more. You’ll be able to run experiments in the cloud on a real quantum device.Furthermore, this book shows you how to do quantum programming using the QISKit (Quantum Information Software Kit), Python SDK, and other APIs such as QASM (Quantum Assembly). You’ll learn to write code using these languages and execute it against simulators (local or remote) or a real quantum computer provided by IBM’s Q Experience. Finally, you’ll learn the current quantum algorithms for entanglement, random number generation, linear search, integer factorization, and others. You’ll peak inside the inner workings of the Bell states for entanglement, Grover’s algorithm for linear search, Shor’s algorithm for integer factorization, and other algorithms in the fields of optimization, and more.Along the way you’ll also cover game theory with the Magic Square, an example of quantum pseudo-telepathy where parties sharing entangled states can be observed to have some kind of communication between them. In this game Alice and Bob play against a referee. Quantum mechanics allows Alice and Bob to always win!By the end of this book, you will understand how this emerging technology provides massive parallelism and significant computational speedups over classical computers, and will be prepared to program quantum computers which are expected to replace traditional computers in the data center.What You Will Learn
- Use the Q Experience Composer, the first-of-its-kind web console to create visual programs/experiments and submit them to a quantum simulator or real device on the cloud
- Run programs remotely using the Q Experience REST API
- Write algorithms that provide superior performance over their classical counterparts
- Build a Node.js REST client for authenticating, listing remote devices, querying information about quantum processors, and listing or running experiments remotely in the cloud
- Create a quantum number generator: The quintessential coin flip with a quantum twist
- Discover quantum teleportation: This algorithm demonstrates how the exact state of a qubit (quantum information) can be transmitted from one location to another, with the help of classical communication and quantum entanglement between the sender and receiver
- Peek into single qubit operations with the classic game of Battleships with a quantum twist
- Handle the counterfeit coin problem: a classic puzzle that consists of finding a counterfeit coin in a beam balance among eight coins in only two turns
