Information Operations is changing from a focus on the former five components to ‘how’ IO works. What is lacking is a model. Without a model we can talk about IO in a general sense but there are no ways to divvy up what we do into logical divisions, dissuading useful discussions within our field...

For collective intelligence directed at security breaches, I would argue, that an effective means of transparently sharing details without fear of recrimination and embarrassment would greatly reduce the impact of such breaches. Fine idea, but how can this be achieved?

A group such as this, extra-legal as they seem to be and rather deliberately evasive using the rubric of “secrecy” as their cloak should set all of your spidey senses off. At best they are a group of people seeking to do good, but in fact may be doing ill by carrying out poor OSINT...

With the advent of Anonymous and Stuxnet and the nascent idea of the internet becoming a “digital nation state” we all have to be mindful that while the technologies out there are a commodity, so too are we in the great game of cold war intelligence and cyber war. We are the commodity that makes the new exploit...

"There appears to have been some progress on developing cyber capabilities. However, cyber security is a fast-paced field and delays in developing our capabilities give our enemies the advantage.

“It is possible to focus on a single metric and drive it up or down, but wreak havoc on the organization through unintended side effects.

Why do I keep running into the phrase Information Warfare? If the discussion is about cyber and warfare in cyberspace, why use the phrase Information Warfare? Has cyber ‘anything’ become so overused that we need to resort to using a much broader term to interest people in a cybersecurity discussion?

Governments need to get a handle on this. If they want patriot hacker units, then they will have them and they will be controlled. As opposed to the Batman vigilante model that we now have here. If they did this, there would be plenty of volunteers and it might be a good thing...

One of the most interesting facts extracted from the report is that the MIVD will focus the majority of its cyber warfare efforts in countering espionage. Given that this is probably the most tangible and widely represented cyber activity currently employed, this is a wise choice...

"Cyber Espionage attacks are not a fabricated issue and are not going away any time soon... They are aiming to expand their access and steal data. Communications (primarily e-mail), research and development (R&D), intellectual property (IP), and business intelligence..."

Al-Qaeda has a plan to leverage the internet even more than they already are. I believe they will continue to put the magazine out and perhaps inspire others to make clones. The ubiquitous nature of the internet will only serve to allow their propaganda to be loosed upon us all...

When the largest security companies in the world have had their source code stolen by hackers, our present security model is broken. Matt Brazil, a former U.S. embassy commercial officer in Beijing, will show executives how to survive in China without losing their secrets...
