Now in its second year, SMi's Social Media within the Military and Defence Sector conference will once again showcase the latest initiatives in the use of Social Media for the Military and how this technology is helping military engagement, online communication, news broadcasting and online recruitment.

Topics covered will include the latest on how Social Media is used as a psychological warfare weapon against adversaries in the ever-evolving domain of cyber space and also how public social networks are used to influence enemies and to explain policy to civilians.

The conference will also address the growing importance of decentralising platforms and connecting people, enhancing the public's understanding and support for defence, infiltrating both open and closed social networks to counter enemy propaganda, data protection and operational security.
