It is interesting how Cyber-security enters the defense agenda:
11:30-13:00 Session II: Shifting ‘smart defence’ from slogan to reality
The notion of Smart Defence has caught on quickly, no doubt because it offers a welcome solution to the intractable problems of capability shortcomings and defence cutbacks on both sides of the Atlantic. But what in practical terms does smart defence constitute, and how should it be benchmarked? Should NATO planners be creating a matrix that gives an at-a-glance guide to each member states’ capabilities in areas ranging from heavy airlift to tactical troop transport, UAVs to helicopters and battlefield communications to cyber-security? Above all, will smart defence be the making of a new eve in transatlantic defence cooperation with NATO, or the breaking of it?
Nice pattern “be the making …or the breaking of it”. Strange that the pitch includes a breaking scenario.
