The Multi Domain Integration approach will need a wide range of skills supporting it, including a stronger focus on space and cyber domains. The panel will discuss what skills are required and the existing skill gap within both Primes and the Forces. They will also review approaches to bridging that gap, and what needs to be done to develop the next generation of skilled personnel.

Cyber Defence in a Fully Networked Force
DSEI's 2021 theme will be Integrated Response to Future Threats. Multi domain integration within the cyber space brings with it a host of factors that require consideration, including network capability and a resiliency that must be based in Secure by Design principles. This panel discusses the challenges to achieving fully networked MDI, from internal standards to the external threat landscape. MDI will require greater collaboration between civil and military sectors to overcome this, and the panel will consider what hurdles must be overcome to ensure an effective partnership.
