The defense industry has not been immune from the trend toward a software defined world. Advanced defense systems critically depend on sophisticated software, and often the ‘edge’ in performance is due to the software IP that is incorporated in the systems.

Unfortunately, all software is vulnerable, and this fact, in combination with the ultrasensitive and mission critical nature of defense software demands extra diligence in cybersecurity. In addition, there are well-resourced, skillful, state-sponsored hacker groups focusing on the new cyberwarfare front that need to be taken into consideration when depending on software and connectivity in the defense world.

We are all aware of advanced military technology like drones falling into enemy hands. These devices, if successfully reverse engineered, can be used to develop hacks that might only come to play at the worst possible time, lending an advantage to the enemy that can’t be countered in the heat of battle.
