Summer 2017

Most of the papers in this latest edition of the Journal of Information Warfare represent the best presentations from the 2017 International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS) held in Dayton, Ohio, and co-sponsored by Wright State University and the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT). This issue of JIW contains a wide variety of research focusing on the broad spectrum of cyber warfare, with an emphasis on Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA), and the Internet of Things (IOT). These areas of cyber security continue to come under increased scrutiny as the dangers and vulnerabilities associated with each are exposed to a greater audience.

There are a large number of cyber academic conferences that are coming soon, if one is interested in participating. Specifically, the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) hosts two events each year as part of its Conference on Cyber Conflict (CYCON). One is U.S.-centric, based in Washington, D.C., and is co-sponsored by the Army Cyber Institute (ACI) in the fall (aci.event.com), and the other is an international event held in the early summer in Estonia:
