Social Media in the Defense & Military Sector

Social media has become an increasingly vital tool for the Armed Forces in the 21st Century, not only to reach out to a wider and younger audience globally for recruitment and information purposes but as a new front in warfare. Serving military and government personnel have access to new platforms and information, leading to an increase in their personal communications but also an increase in information risk management. Social media channels are also heavily sued to promote armed forces' activities abroad and increasing transparency with host societies (a strong part of the "Hearts and Minds" campaigns).


This event is primarily focused on how the military and defence agencies use social media in their day-to-day activities such as communication, recruitment, and during operations and campaigns. This year will also feature sessions on cyber warfare and using social media platforms for open-source intelligence gathering and the conference will enhance understanding of social media usage and increase awareness and engagement between the military and the public. Hear from experts from government agencies on how they use social media to promote their campaigns and engage directly with the public.
