Transforming UK Defence

UK Defence leaders are facing challenges that are complex and dynamic. They are the result of evolving geopolitical tensions, rapidly advancing technological capabilities and the emergence of non-traditional adversaries. Added to this landscape is the increasing use of cyber warfare to disrupt and undermine defence capabilities.

To maintain their ability to deter potential aggressors and achieve a competitive edge on the battlefield, UK Defence leaders need to embrace transformation. Over the coming years they will need to adopt intelligent data use, optimise supply chains to ensure access to the most modern equipment, invest in reinforcing cyber defences and move legacy IT to the cloud. Most importantly, they must do this whilst welcoming and empowering a new generation of personnel to perform at their best.

Now is the time for change.
