Information Warfare. We used to talk about this as a historical or acadewhich mic issue, one in we could use vignettes or test cases from World War II or Vietnam as instances of deception, operations security, or psychological warfare efforts conducted in an active warfare operation. Everything has changed as we see an active measure information campaign by Russia during the 2016 United States election process, where fake news is considered the norm.

All of these issues make the research and the original ideas promulgated in the current issue of the Journal of Information Warfare particularly relevant as these are written by Civil Service staff and Senior Executive Service officials of the National Security Agency who, in many cases, are leading the effort by the United States to conduct offensive and defensive cyber operations.

We think and we hope that you agree that these papers are extremely relevant to the world that we live in today.

Cheers, Dr. Leigh Armistead, CISSP
