CYBER FOCUS DAY – 16TH JANUARY 2017
Electronic Warfare (EW) and Cyber are becoming key components to the defensive warfighting arsenal particularly when more military operations are dependent on information superiority. Therefore, dominance of the electromagnetic spectrum and intelligence systems will be a major dictator future missions and mitigate the risk presented by hybrid networks.
Electronic Warfare 2018 will for the first time organise a Cyber Focus Day, chaired by Tim Watts, Former Signals Chief, British Army, to provide militaries, government agencies and industry organisations an opportunity to discuss ways to realign their electronic warfare and cyber capabilities while improving cooperation on joint operations.
INTEGRATING ELECTRONIC WARFARE AND CYBER CAPABILITIES
Electronic warfare and cyber now work parallel to one another to achieve dominance of the information domain. As militaries look to more closely align and modernise their C4ISTAR capabilities, EW and cyber will better compromise enemy intelligence. This section will analyse how the two skill sets can be best utilised together in future operations.
CIVIL-MILITARY COOPERATION IN COUNTERING CYBER THREATS
Increasingly cyber-attacks are affecting both civilian and military assets. For years the corporate sector has tried to manage the effects of cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure and there are many key lessons to be learnt from both sides to prevent future damage. This session will look at ways in which the civilian and military sectors can learn valuable lessons from each other’s experience.
MILITARY RESPONSE TO THE THREAT OF CYBER ATTACKS
Learning from the Gulf and similar insurgency based conflicts where threats have come from hybrid networks militaries must continue to improve their cyber defensive measures. Considering the current trend in cyber-attacks from more sophisticated militaries, it is imperative that the bulk of military investment goes into cyber capabilities. This final area will look at ways the military can prepare and respond to a cyber threat.
