Stylized Image of the Word Editorial

SEPTEMBER 2005

Welcome to the 11th issue of JIW. I must apologize for the delay in this issue. Factors beyond our control contributed to this. However, this issue addresses a variety of topics and come from authors in a number of nations (the UK, Finland, and Australia). The first from Darnton looks at the use of content analysis in information warfare, whilst Jormakka and Molsa examine the more mathematically base game theory as a tool in information warfare. Rowlingson looks at the ever present threat from insiders as a threat to information security. Hutchinson looks at information and its changing nature and use by governments, and finally Jones, Mee, Meyler, and Gooch examine the security threat from the casual disposal of data storage media.

Please keep submitting your papers. Please note that your make the editors job a lot easier if you submit in the correct format, you ensure that spelling mistakes and so on have been dealt with and that references are complete.

I hope you enjoy this issue.
