Venue : Hall 3A, MITEC (NATSEC HALL)
Theme : "The Terrorist, Exploitation of Cyber Space"

Cyber Security & Defence Zone will focus on the challenge of managing Military and Security Cyber Threat. As militaries, governments and critical national infrastructure increase their reliance on data-heavy remote assets and cloud storage, there are new vulnerabilities for aggressors to exploit. Unless these vulnerabilities can be addressed, our community’s ability to deliver information security will be seriously compromised.

The ambition of the Cyber Security & Defence Zone will be to develop a more sophisticated approach to threat detection, deterrence and response. Key topics of discussion will include threat intelligence, interoperability, remote asset protection and incident response. For militaries in particular, a multi-domain operating environment demands augmented cyber resilience.

But DSA must continue to evolve and reflect what is happening in the defence community and so DSA will continue to feature the CBRNe seminar.
