A Cyber Conversation

6.00pm to 7.00pm

MAJGEN Marcus Thompson is the Australian Defence Force’s inaugural Head of Information Warfare. His appointment, and the establishment of Information Warfare Division, signified a significant shift for the ADF. The world was rapidly changing, and the Defence Force needed to quickly change with it. Cyberspace is part of a new warfighting domain, where information is a commodity, a weapon and an instrument of national power.

As he approaches the end of his tenure as Head Information Warfare, MAJGEN Thompson will join CyberCX Chief Strategy Officer, Alastair MacGibbon, for A Cyber Conversation. As the former National Cyber Security Adviser, and former Head of the Australian Cyber Security Centre, Alastair offers a unique perspective on one of our most significant national issues.
