KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 24 -- Arqit Quantum Inc (Arqit), a leader in quantum encryption technology, has announced the appointment of Boon Hui Khoo as an advisor, effective immediately.

An internationally-renowned expert in law enforcement and cybersecurity, Boon has led a highly distinguished and decorated career fighting crime for over 40 years, according to a statement.

Arqit founder, chairman and chief executive officer David Williams, said Boon brings with him an immense wealth of experience and specialist insight into global cyber security as well as high status in the Singapore market.

“This will be invaluable as we execute our vision to deliver stronger, simpler encryption to the world,” he said.

Meanwhile, Boon said he was honoured to join Arqit’s world-class team of quantum tech experts.

“I look forward to working with them as we share a great optimism about Arqit’s offering and the progress they have already made towards driving critical conversations around cybersecurity imperatives on a global stage,” he said.

He previously served as the Senior Deputy Secretary of Singapore’s Home Affairs Ministry, the Police Commissioner of Singapore (1997-2010), and as President of INTERPOL (2008-2012).

He has chaired major international fora, including three of the very first United States-Singapore homeland security dialogues, and the biennial Milipol APAC security conference.

In recognition of his contributions to public service and safety, Boon has been decorated with high national honours from Singapore, Australia, Brunei, France, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Vatican.

Arqit supplies a unique quantum encryption Platform-as-a-Service which makes the communications links of any networked device secure against current and future forms of attack – even from a quantum computer.
