Cyber warfare Top
John Lyons, CEO, International Cyber Security Protection Alliance (ICSPA)
With cyber attacks now effecting government agencies, armed forces, public and private businesses as well as the individual, it has never been more important for improved protection against such threats. John Lyons argues for the need for cooperation among all these international stakeholders to tackle the growing problem.
Land systems Top
Brigadier Ian Rigden, head of land and research DCDC, UK MoD
Future combat environments are likely to be significantly different from those experienced by British forces since the turn of the century, and new thinking on the requirements and capabilities of armoured vehicles is needed, according to Brigadier Rigden.
Vice Admiral Mark D Harnitchek, director, Defense Logistics Agency
With responsibility for logistics of the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and other federal agencies, we find out from Mark D Harnitchek what a massive task keeping the world's largest armed forces on the move and ready for battle is.
