Description

In this guide, you will discover the many risks to the U.S. Army’s command and control (C2) operations and its intelligence and information warfare (IW) capabilities.

According to Wikipedia, the term, Information Warfare (IW) is “a concept involving the battlespace use and management of information and communication technology (ICT) in pursuit of a competitive advantage over an opponent. Information warfare is the manipulation of information trusted by a target without the target's awareness, so that the target will make decisions against their interest but in the interest of the one conducting information warfare.” (citation: Wikipedia, Information Warfare, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_warfare)

The global arena is rapidly becoming increasingly complex and combative in many sectors including:

Economic competition

Challenges associated with deep differences in addressing individual freedoms

Military conflict to now include terrorists and religious extremists

Today’s challenges include: significant uncertainty; sudden unexpected events; high noise and clutter levels in intelligence pictures; basic and complex deceptions exercised through a variety of channels; the actions of hidden malign actors; and novel forms of attack on U.S. and allied command, control, communications, computers, information/intelligence, surveillance, targeting acquisition, and reconnaissance (C4ISTAR) systems. Furthermore, once information dominance is achieved, maintaining it will demand continuous change and development.
