VOLUME 21, ISSUE 3 EDITORIAL

Summer 2022

This latest edition of the JIW, brings an exciting number of papers from esteemed academics who address a wide and varied series of research efforts across the Information Warfare and Cyber Security spectrum. We begin with the paper from Bodström writing about “Strategic Cyber Environment Management with Zero-Trust and Cyber Counterintelligence”, which is directly related to many of the current issues that the Department of Defense (U.S.) and other organizations are dealing with. This is followed by Shen, Chen, and Tseng, who collaborated on a paper focusing on “Relating Credibility to Writing Style, Emotion and Scope of Spread of Disinformation”, which is very interesting on what works, and does not, for these types of campaigns. Next is Huskaj and Blix, with their research on “Validating a Framework for Offensive Cyberspace Operations”, and how these types of mission could be conducted in the future. After that, we switch to the offensive with Canham, Sutterlin, Ask, Knox, Glenister, and Lugo in their research on "Ambiguous Self-Induced Disinformation (ASID) Attacks: Weaponizing a Cognitive Deficiency", which is very insightful in their research approach. Next is Mahoney and Grispo,s “Cyber Pirates Ahoy! An analysis of Cybersecurity Challenges in the Shipping Industry”, that focuses on both the IT and OT issues in the maritime environment and a possible path forward. We also had a paper from the founder and current Deputy Editor of the JIW, Dr Bill Hutchinson on “Strategic Cognition War”,. In addition, we have a paper from Newman, entitled “Information Warfare: Leveraging the DMMI Matrix Cube for Risk Assessment”, which I found to be a very interesting approach. And our final paper was from Plotnek and Slay, with their research on a “Space Systems Security Definition”. All in all, this was a series of solid and insightful research.
