Overall, this book is a great read for those interested in information warfare
. But as the concept of hybrid warfare continues to emerge across military, academic, and professional settings in the West and Russia, this book importantly distinguishes the various perspectives.
As future conflicts come into existence in the technological and cyber domain, "He who controls the trend will control the narrative- and ultimately, the narrative controls the will of the people." (22) This form of information warfare
capability is often oversimplified and underestimated and therefore leads the target audience to exploitation through already existing vulnerabilities.
Ironically, rather than pocketing the Trump bonus, Russia's information warfare
has handicapped the US president by greatly reducing Russia's soft power in America.
Big data concepts used in business could be advantageous and used in information warfare
. It is possible that data-mining and subsequently an information advantage could achieve objectives purely through IW alone.
tactics are used to soften up populations prior to unleashing nastier forms of aggression, and so should not be dismissed as"just a lot of talk." Whether Russia could achieve another success such as that in Crimea is debatable, but the West should not be caught unaware by further Russian subterfuge.
It should be noted that currently organizational structure units designated to conduct information warfare
are developed in the PLA.
Further, "Information warfare
is about operations that target or exploit information resources."(2) Nevertheless, several secondary and tertiary sources term her description "Denning's Definition." (3) Other researchers assert that "Information warfare
is combat operations in a high-tech battlefield environment in which both sides use information technology means, equipment, or systems in a rivalry over the power to obtain, control, and use information." (4)
The treats of bio-chemical, suicide or psychological warfare, and information warfare
are on the rise in today's societies as more political argument and groups emerge.
Many factors guarantee that the role of information warfare
in military planning and operations will expand greatly in the next two to three decades.
It is information warfare
by another name, and information warriors will, as they always have, mold cyberspace to achieve combat ends in the true fighting domains of air, land, sea, and space.
