September, 2010

Welcome to the second issue of JIW for 2010 and the 26th issue overall. The Journal of Information Warfare continues to engage in the ever widening discipline of information warfare / operations. In particular, this issue examines disparities in the field of influence across both soft and hard power, and within critical and non-critical structures. The issue has 5 papers. The paper by Huhtinen, Armistead and Schou looks at the integration of information warfare training with traditional military training. It considers the shift from  command and control-based leadership to new forms of information-based contributions. The paper by Leming looks at the widening differences in Network Centric Warfare (NCW) within the military sector and the enterprise arena. Leming examines the different pathways along which NCW continues to evolve and the failure of commerce to engage in areas of information superiority. The paper by Feyyaz considers the increased need for the development of soft power in conjunction with the rapid increase in deployment of technological superiority of information and influence. His paper employs a South-Asian focus in arguing for the improvement of India–Pakistan relations through a socially cohesive approach to information warfare. The paper by Karp, Haury and Davis examines a range of management issues relating to shared documents. In so doing, the paper exposes some obvious access control issues whilst suggesting a possible solution.The final paper by Henry, Stange and Trias considers the need for a system of classification of cyber attacks that allows for a greater understanding of cyber threats from within a specifically warfare-based framework.
