· Instances of cybercrime are reaching a peak, as cyber criminals have no borders and rely on soft power to defeat their adversary. Due to the lack of international prosecution of cyber criminals, data protection and network resilience are critical to ensure data reliability. How can armed forces and intelligence communities improve cyber defence against malicious actors?
· The big data environment needs to be secure and protected from cyberattacks. Digitisation presents a myriad of opportunities, however it also opens up new risks and vulnerabilities. Coupled with the proliferation of IoT, digitisation requires armed force leaders to integrate new solutions that would ensure data reliability. What should be done to mitigate the risks of digitisation? How can the IT infrastructure improve to allow malware detection at the highest speed? What kind of reverse engineering needs to be done to recover an attacked system at pace?
· As the operating environment becomes increasingly cyber contested and opponents continue building capability in the cyber domain, the operator has to adapt and acquire new skills. What training provisions should be incorporated to instil this cultural shift and equip the Warfighter with the necessary cyber skills? What will the future Cyber Soldier look like?
