ISF 2* Info Cap Briefing with AVM Rocky Rochelle

This techUK ISF Briefing will be an opportunity to discuss some of the key threats to UK forces currently, including emerging and potential nation state conflicts, the implications of an evolving battlespace and the growing significance of cyber threats. The MOD has made significant progress in enhancing its information technology capabilities, and AVM Rocky Rochelle will discuss where he sees the most important challenges and opportunities to deliver information advantage in the future. 

AVM Rochelle will also discuss the need for a coherent approach as we move forward, utilising emerging technologies and services from non-traditional suppliers to ensure that the UK is able to compete other nation states with larger resources and budgets. As part of this the session will foster discussion within the defence information community on how industry and the MOD can work together to exploit emerging technologies from adjacent sectors more rapidly going forward.

Attendees will discuss the growing importance of data, connectivity and Post-geography operations require a change of mind set amongst UK forces to ensure that we are adequately defended against emerging disinformation, cyber and electro-magnetic threats. The different approaches of the represented Frontline Commands will be examined, and speakers will be able to ask industry to illustrate ways they could further support MOD’s efforts in this area. The sessions will also include networking opportunities and networking drinks.
