NZ's defence and national security business magazine

DEFSEC Media launched its latest magazine title, Line of Defence, in late April 2016. The magazine breaks new ground as New Zealand’s only business magazine for the defence and national security sectors.

“It’s our objective that the magazine become the New Zealand defence industry’s voice – and a force multiplier in the projection of that voice to national and international audiences,” stated managing editor Nick Dynon.

“The threats faced in today’s national security setting – and the solutions required to address them – require complex policy and operational responses that transcend the traditional military domain,” he commented. “Accordingly, Line of Defence reflects an understanding that contemporary national security requires the deployment of solutions across the broad national security 'ecosystem', including defence, diplomacy, intelligence, border and aviation security, biosecurity, cyber security, counter terrorism, emergency management and critical national infrastructure protection.”

This ecosystem is reflected in the structure and content of the new magazine, with dedicated sections for Defence, International Security, Border Security and Homeland Security.

Line of Defence also brings together the insights and views of business, military, government and academia within the one publication. “The magazine is a clearing house of ideas from a revolving door of respected thinkers, rather than merely a mouthpiece for limited interests,” said Mr Dynon.

According to publisher Craig Flint, the launch of the new title in April 2016 was timely. “After two decades of providing the security industry with a vehicle to promote safety and standards to New Zealand and with the production of Fire NZ", he stated, “there was still a gap that needed to be filled, and that was defence.”

The Line of Defence editorial team include seasoned practitioners, scholars and commentators of defence and strategic affairs, national security, diplomacy and international relations. It is this expertise that provides New Zealand businesses in the defence and national security sectors with a powerful New Zealand media voice and a trusted platform for national and international promotion.

Line of Defence is available in print by subscription and online to everyone.
