This week Editor Katherine Ziesing highlights shortfalls in Army's workforce management following the release of an ANAO report and there's a definite space theme with a French space expert encouraging the establishment of a local space agency and a launch of Australian cubesats.

In other news, the clock is ticking with new data breach reporting laws affecting most businesses coming into effect in less than a year and the Damen built multi-role aviation training vessel MV Sycamore has completed her sea trials.

Upon the announcement yesterday of his retirement from the post of Defence Secretary, the ADM team takes this opportunity to acknowledge Dennis Richardson's long and dedicated public service and wish him well for the future.

And finally, as we approach ANZAC Day, we acknowledge the sacrifice and dedication of Australia's military personnel, past and present.

Lest we forget.
