About this event

Moving from a world in which we control the generation of the information we use, and can therefore trust, to a world dominated by the ubiquity of unvalidated information will challenge every aspect of the way in which the UK Defence and National Security enterprise functions. Mastery of the information environment is today’s arms race. In this talk, Neil will explain the implications of these technological changes and how they impact on the behavioural operation of UK defence and security, from planning to operations.
