The goal of this conference is to explore areas of concern and options for a better cooperation regarding how to ensure the safety, security and functionality in the Rear Area and ensure Military Mobility that allows for the rapid reinforcement of troops into Europe and within Europe with partners of all domains, and to learn how international industry is managing challenges today. Technology and solutions for handling and securing the vast amount of diverse information involved is at the core of these two tasks. Imminent advances in technologies driven by digitisation, such as cloud services and 5G, will also have an impact on the scope of JSEC’s work.

The two main streams of the conference:

A. Unify efforts to ensure the safety, security and functionality in the Rear Area under the specific cybersecurity threats to both military operations and critical infrastructure, while simultaneously keeping an eye on the hybrid warfare threats. Major purpose of these tasks is to:

B. Ensure Military Mobility that allows for the rapid reinforcement of troops into Europe and within Europe. Military mobility depends on critical transportation and communications infrastructure, and inter-sectoral cooperation.

Both of the above tasks A and B are entwined and heavily rely on a comprehensive situational picture which needs to be created and maintained in real time and in cooperation with host nations. The situational picture needs to integrate myriads of heterogeneous data from diverse IT systems, efficient planning tools, and effective counter measures. These two tasks will be further challenged by the advancing digitisation in government, economy and society. NATO and the EU should be encouraged to leverage their respective activities.
