Cyber Webinar

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 multi domain integration, from internal standards to the external threat landscape. Multi domain integration will require greater collaboration between civil and military sectors and the panel will consider what hurdles must be overcome to ensure an effective partnership.
