Indo-Pacific Series

Aerospace, Defence & Security Technology Market Trends


In a rapidly changing world, regional partnerships have never been more important.

Strategic regional partnerships in the aerospace, defence and security technology markets are key to ongoing success.

Following our India's Reach Series - Episode 1 - 8 and the 2020 AUSMIN talks we are shifting the weekly series to the Indo-Pacific.

At AUSMIN 2020 in Washington, "The United States and Australia reaffirmed their commitment to Trilateral dialogues with Japan and Quad consultations with Japan and India. They reaffirmed their strong support for ASEAN, ASEAN-led regional architecture, and ASEAN’s Outlook on the Indo-Pacific..."

The United States and Australia plan to continue to mobilize private sector investment throughout the Indo-Pacific to deliver high-quality, resilient infrastructure and natural resource projects in partner countries that adhere to international standards and best practices on the rule of law, sovereignty, and free-market principles. The United States and Australia updated their development cooperation Memorandum of Understanding, committing to build the stability, prosperity, and resilience of the Indo-Pacific. 

The Secretaries and Ministers recognized an interest in strengthening the mutual security and prosperity of the United States and Australia through investment in technology, innovation, and research to develop new industries, drive economic growth, and enhance readiness. The Secretaries and Ministers affirmed the value of bilateral collaboration on issues including hypersonics, integrated air and missile defense, electronic and undersea warfare, space, cyber, critical minerals, and other technologies." Joint Statement Australia-U.S. Ministerial Consultations (AUSMIN) 2020

ViDi Labs

TOPIC DOMAIN: Cyber Security , Awareness, Remote Working

Security Awareness for Remote Workforce


Chirag D Joshi, M.S., CISA, CISM, CRISC, author of  ‘7 Rules to Influence Behaviour and Win at Cyber Security Awareness‘ 

These are unique times – stress, anxiety and uncertainty around health, jobs and economy. Humans are often really poor in dealing with uncertainty.

Working remotely is inherently different than in the office. Especially when it becomes the norm, as opposed to an occasional event.

Join Chirag for this session as he discusses practical ways to maintain security awareness and promote secure behaviour in these times. After all, most cyber incidents occur due to human errors and mistakes, not complicated technical exploits.

Duration – 30 – 60 minutes – incl Q&A




TOPIC DOMAINS: Cyber Security, Industrial Control Systems, Business Continuity

Effective Business Continuity Preparedness and Disaster Recovery Preparedness for Industrial Control Systems 

Daniel Ehrenreich, B.Sc. Engineering, ISO27001 Lead Auditor.

Secure Communications and Control Experts Reliable and safe operation of Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are considered critical for a broad range of industries supporting the wellbeing on a national level. The growing convergence of IT and ICS, long-time separated domains, calls for a special attention and adoption of ICS-oriented best practices.

That being said, these functionalities can be jeopardised internally by an incentivised individual, or through remote access by a hostile organisation; Hence appropriate preventive measures should be taken to mitigate these breaches and minimize possible damages.

Duration – 30 – 60 minutes – incl Q&A

TOPIC DOMAINS: Criminology, Crime, Security Applications

Offenders – what’s their story

Martin Gill – Criminologist

Join Professor Martin Gill, a renowned Criminologist and researcher discussing crime and security with insight from the offender’s perspective. How do offenders select their targets and how should the security industry and organisations posture themselves to present the greatest deterrence. 

Duration – 30 – 60 minutes – incl Q&A
