Major General Marcus Thompson AM has been the head of the Information Warfare Division at the Department of Defence since its establishment in 2017.

MAJGEN Thompson joins hosts Phil Tarrant and Steve Kuper on this episode of Defence Connect Insight Podcast to discuss what prompted the formation of the division, and how his strategy strikes a balance between reactively responding to emerging threats and proactively looking to the future.

The Major General outlines the qualities he looks for in recruiting talent to his team, the important distinction between national resilience and security, and the role of the ADF and, more specifically, his division, in responding to significant events such as COVID-19 and the Australian bushfires.
