“Australian Industry Group Defence Council working with Defence is really about recognising defence industry as that fundamental input to capability and about recognising the national security flavour that goes over the top of everything that we do.” This week on the Defence Connect Podcast, former First Assistant Secretary Defence Industry Policy Kate Louis joins us in her new role as head of defence and industry policy of Australian Industry Group. Louis takes us through her 20-year in the Department of Defence, specialising in capability development acquisition and defence industry policy, and her decision to join Ai Group and lead its Defence Council. The former First Assistant Secretary discusses the dangerous new world developing out of cyber security threats and how this is affecting the defence industry, how Ai Group is leading the discussion with Defence around exports and the Australian Standard for Defence Contracting (ASDEFCON) suite of tendering and contracting templates.
