Information Warfare / Infowar


Also Cyberwar and Netwar. Infowar is the use of information and information systems as weapons in a conflict in which the information and information systems themselves are the targets.

Infowar has been divided into three classes;-

  1. Individual Privacy
  2. Industrial and Economic Espionage
  3. Global information warfare, i.e. Nation State versus Nation State.

Most organisations will not need to be concerned over classes I and III, but clearly Class II is relevant to any organisation wishing to protect its confidential information.
