Information Warfare is a term that means many things to many people. The Journal of Information Warfare (JIW) strives to be as inclusive as possible to bring in all different aspects of this important capability, from the “softer” topics, such as perception management and strategic communications, to the “harder” areas, such as computer network defense and electronic warfare. By utilizing a big tent approach, our goal is to ensure that all parts of this important capability are included in our academic discussion and debate. This is our goal: namely to ensure that all views are heard and reviewed in a systemic and rigorous manner, such as this Winter edition of JIW which includes eight articles from 21 contributing authors from disparate nations including Sudan, Poland, South Africa, and the United States.

Looking forward, the JIW will host once again a special spring edition of our journal with papers from the National Security Agency (NSA) and the US Cyber Command. Our staff is also heavily involved with the International Cyber Conference on Warfare and Security which just completed its 11th annual event at Boston University on 17-18 March 2016. This event featured Daryl Haegley from the Office of Secretary of Defense who spoke on the cyber security implications of control systems as well as Neal Ziring, the Technical Director of the Information Assurance Directorate at the NSA, with over 100 delegates from over 15 nations. It was an outstanding conference and the JIW is proud to be involved in these important proceedings.
