This panel will be a valuable opportunity to assess those emerging capabilities that will revolutionise the protection of information in a distributed, remote asset-heavy network. Discussion points will include:
- Developing a more sophisticated approach to cyber threat intelligence. Using advanced analytics to accurately predict, prioritise and respond to threats to the networks. Can an accurate understanding of attacker motivations contribute to the implementation of a robust defensive framework?
- Encrypting communications and datalinks to support the protection of and access to remote assets, even when the network is distributed across a complex operating space
- How might blockchain be used to support information security for defence networks?
- How will innovations in artificial intelligence support a broader approach to cyber defence?
