This is a positive indicator I know, but I will not be entirely satisfied until we have won over the remaining 16 per cent. In cyberspace as we have seen now on many occasions you are only as strong as the weakest link.

Over the past year the NHTCU has emerged through a phase that has seen refinement, sophistication and reinforcement across a broad range of initiatives.

The shifting dynamics of the digital terrain do not naturally lend themselves to this consolidation process, so in many respects the scale and diversity of the challenge has grown.

Yet it is an absolute truth that the cutting edge technology, which shapes the theatre of operations today, will become commonplace tomorrow, and may even be heading for obsolescence the day there after; and as science alters the dimensions of the medium that is our workplace, so we will have to adapt time and time again. The secret is of course to develop a mindset to match the flexibility and multiplicity of the landscape.
