In 2045, the world may be experiencing a revolution in social and security affairs through the advent of quantum computing.

The advent of Quantum Computing will render all data that is password protected and encrypted open to the user of the right tools. Not only would this be a revolution in the security field, in a similar vein to Dreadnought in the 1900s, it will also have profound effects on everyday society.
Unless this is managed globally, there could well be a scenario where one or two states (or companies) have the ability to look at the world's data with no vice-versa deterrence in place.
