comment What kinds of encryption are _not_ breakable via Quantum Computers?
Quantum computers are still a ways off. The concept relies on using bits, that when unobserved, are both 1 and 0 and so able to calculate with all the values that can be represented in the given space -- with one calculation. As romantic as this sounds, I have yet to hear of a way to calculate with this bits while leaving them unobserved.

As far as I know the police are generally incompetent at comparing dynamic IPs with an ISPs logs of who they belonged to at the time. Depending on your configuration you may be able to wait for your computer to come online, then access its remotely

comment Can wiped SSD data be recovered?
In some ways yes: Data is not always overwritten, In other ways no: Due to garbage collection on modern SSDs the longer a drive is in use the harder it will be to locate and read the data.

comment using network switches to prevent malicious promiscuous mode usage
I like this answer. I would like to add a note about IDS though. If op is concerned enough about active sniffing using an IDS is a must. They will be able to detect exactly this sort of behavior, responding accordingly.
