Overview

The defense landscape has changed dynamically over the past decade. Threats from conventional insurgent activities are no longer the only concerns for the defense agencies.
With a greater dependence on computer systems and a reliance on integrated networking, today’s armed forces are faced with an ever-changing set of challenges in maintaining cyber security from the threat of attack. Rapid evolution in technology has forced governments and industry alike to continually develop secure systems that remain one step ahead of the enemy. As cyber systems become increasingly integrated, the requirement for a multi-layered, adaptive and self-learning security system becomes imperative. With the prevalence of electronic communications, a widespread access to mobile networked devices and the defense industry’s increasing reliance on Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, the cyber threat to today’s defense sector has never been more apparent. The cyber landscape is both dynamic and borderless and requires the collaboration of all defense stakeholders.
