Information Warfare: corporate attack and defence in a digital world (Computer Weekly Professional)

Buy
The idea for this book came out of a need to find a text for a unit in Information Warfare given to Doctor of Business Administration students. Most of the existing texts had a military flavour and so did not suit our task. Others concentrated on security aspects and assumed some level of knowledge in this area. What we wanted was a text that illustrated the uses and abuses of information and its power in the civilian world. Hence, this text was born.

Both authors have a background in information warfare but from different directions. Mat Warren has an interest in security and terrorism, whilst my background is in intelligence systems and management of information and its associated systems. Hopefully, the combination has made for an interesting book.

Another limitation of other texts was the absence of a simple, non-military paradigm for information warfare. Whilst the metaphor ‘warfare’ will always give the subject a military bias, the revolution in the types of conflict in the contemporary world often makes the purely military context not as useful as it could be.

Civilians are fighting this war and they live in a different world with different paradigms and rules. Therefore, this text is geared for those with a management interest in the topic, although those with a general interest will also find it helpful. It is assumed the main audience will also be working in or around conventional information technology departments. There is a need in this fast, networked world to understand the concepts outlined.
