In this special episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Steve Kuper speaks with Nick Asscher and Bill Freeman, directors at Touchpoint Technology, to discuss the increasing importance of trust and reliability when delivering technology solutions for Defence.
Recorded live at Indo Pacific 2023, they begin discussing the history of Touchpoint and its growing role in supporting the Department of Defence and key defence companies.
They also discuss the challenges facing ICT suppliers in the defence and national security space and the rising importance of secure, reliable, and “trusted” suppliers to provide Defence with the confidence that sensitive information is secure even in a contested environment.
Finally, they discuss the emerging trends in the defence ICT space and the long-term planning, logistics, and infrastructure that enable our critical defence capabilities.
