·         Information and technological development are transforming the way we fight. Opponents are exploiting attacks below the threshold of warfare, sometimes with the intent to spur a kinetic response. Gaining advantage and superiority for hybrid warfare will require capability transformation and the integration of an information age of systems and services. How can we gear up to counter the threat of hybrid warfare? What must be done to harness conventional, cyber, and information warfare capabilities for future conflict? How can we best embrace combinations of information-centric technologies?

·          Disinformation and fake news is proliferating, as adversaries are attempting to break public morale and launch political interventions across the electromagnetic spectrum, space and cyber domains. How can we increase military resilience and exploit the cyber domain to defeat disinformation strategies and provide a proportionate response to attacks outside of our legal and political norms? What role does open source intelligence play in disseminating fake news and how can we unlock its advantages?

·         What should our military response be to retain the capability edge and information advantage in the future? What should be done to cultivate talent, build international partnerships, and enable innovation and experimentation? How can we better exploit defence industry and academia as art of our military response?
