Volume 8, Issue 3 Editorial

Stylized Image of the Word Editorial

DECEMBER 2009

Welcome to the 24th issue of JIW and the last that I will be Editor in Charge. I will be retiring at the end of the year so wish you all well and thank you for all your contributions over the last eight years. The organisation of the journal will be changed somewhat with Professors Matthew Warren and Craig Valli, and Dr. Leigh Armistead sharing the editorial load which should make better management of the content. David Cook will be the Coordinating Editor and all paper should be sent to him at:

d.cook@ecu.edu.au

This issue has six papers, the first by Neikerk and Maharaj explores the role of Electronic Warfare in the Information Warfare domain. Pye and Warren then examine the relationship between Information Warfare and Critical Infrastructure Protection which is then followed by Watt and Janczewski who review a study that examines the readiness of Critical Infrastructure management to a cyber-attack in the New Zealand context. James comes next with a more technically oriented paper that looks at Secure Portable Devices in Network Centric Operations. Then Schou, Ryan and Armistead examine the response to the need for Information Operations education. Finally, Efthymiopoulos chronicles NATO’s response to countering electronic warfare attacks in the 21st century.
