The military structures and strategies that brought us to victory in the past are no longer as effective. We face a different kind of enemy on a different kind of front.

New battlegrounds.
Defense spending is down in the United States and much of Europe. Yet a resurgence in threats to global security, on the ground and in cyberspace, can translate to revenue growth for suppliers over the next few years. However, this transition from budget cuts to spiraling demand extends the risks from the front lines to your bottom line, and demands an exacting strategy.
