The quantum race is underway. Governments and private investors all around the world are pouring billions into quantum R&D. Satellite-based quantum key distribution for encryption is laying the groundwork for a potential quantum security-based global communication network. IBM, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and others are investing heavily in large-scale hardware and software. Nobody is quite there yet. 

Even so, business leaders should consider developing strategies to address three main areas: 1.) planning for quantum security, 2.) identifying use cases for quantum computing, and 3.) thinking through responsible design.
