What trend(s) do you see today regarding data?
Access to data is key for our society and essential for our Governments and institutions. Whether in a civilian or defence context, enabling access to information in real-time provides information superiority, which is crucial for successfully carrying out a wide range of missions, such as recovery ones in the aftermath of a humanitarian crisis or a natural disaster, or tactical information collection within a defence theatre of operations. Within a fast changing globalized environment and geopolitical challenges, threats to the vital access to information are constantly increasing. Networks or the data that they carry can be disrupted, altered, compromised or even disabled. Both telecommunications networks and infrastructures can be subject to accidental or intentional failures, filtering, monitoring or cyber incidents that are fully outside the control of its users. This also affects largely Governments through their institutional and defence operations across the globe.
