Defence, Intelligence & Security Conference

Globally disruptive technologies are changing the face of future warfare, while new security threats and challenges are arising daily for those tasked with protecting us. In Ireland the national security architecture is undergoing unprecedented changes with the reform of An Garda Síochána, the creation of a National Security Analysis Centre, and growing calls for a comprehensive reevaluation of defence policies and capabilities.

Agenda & Speakers
