[1] Call for Papers for Infocon Magazine Issue Two

Over the next few months we are planning to publish useful articles and
interviews for the forthcoming issues of the Infocon Magazine. So if you
are interested in participating by writing an article, please contact
us.

http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/call-for-papers.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[2] Information Operations Interview with Dr. Dan Kuehl from the
National Defense University

'...I see it [IO] not as a replacement for existing military operations.
I see it as something which can stand along side of them in its own
distinct and unique sense, and changes how all of them are conducted to
exploit the relationships and synergies among them. . ..'

http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/io-kuehl.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[3] Psychological Operations Interview with the former Deputy Commander
of NATO's Information Campaign in Bosnia

'... IO is so complex a phenomena that today's commander has difficulty
understanding it. And unfortunately IO is still a world of specialists
today. Until it becomes a general part of the battle system, its effects
are going to be limited. You can have different commanders in the same
physical locations with the same units who know how to use IO and employ
those fundamentals and then you have commanders who won't do it at all
as at the end of the day the issue is results and not how they got
there. ...'

http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/psyop-dietz.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[4] Information Operations Feature: Measuring 'Digital Wars': Learning
>From The Experience of Peace Research and Arms Control

'... Are 'digital wars'(or, Computer Networks Operations in
military-speak) 'real'? Can they really cause economic damage and loss
of lives? Can poor countries use them to integrate or even, following
Sun Tzu, to replace more expensive weapons systems? If the answers are
positive, then it should be possible to measure cyberwars. ...'

http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/measuring-io.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[5] Business Continuity Planning - A safety net for businesses

'... Every business faces minor downtimes, and major unknowns; hence it
is important to have plans in place which guarantee business
contingency. Before the September 2001 attack on America quite a few
business people said that they saw BCP as an inefficient use of
resources, i.e. an expenditure which does not bring any return on
investments. But statistics tell a different story, and events like 9-11
serve as drastic reminders that it is vital for every company to have
plans in place to ensure business continuity, and the continuity of our
suppliers and logistics - especially as globalization and our
interdependence continues to grow. ...'

http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/business-continuity-planning.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[6] Business Continuity Planning Interview with David Spinks, EDS

'... There are enough codes of practice in place for senior management
to not only support business continuity planning, but actually pushing
people to deliver it, because at the end of the day the board of
directors is held responsible in times of crisis if there is not
adequate planning. In the UK, we have generally recognized practices
such as the Turnbull Combined Code of Practice which makes various
commitments on both executive and non executive officers of
organisations to manage not just financial risk but also operational,
environmental and safety risks. And one of the key responses to risk
management is business continuity planning. If they are not supporting
BCP plans the needle from innocent to guilty will move rapidly from
innocent to guilty. And I think there are enough cases in place now,
enough proof in place, to suggest to any peer groups of executive
officers that they need to take business continuity planning seriously.
...'

         ----------------------------------------------------

[7] Economic Espionage Feature: Economic Espionage - a threat to
corporate America

'... Billions of dollars and thousands of jobs are lost due to theft of
trade secrets. Corporate America needs to acknowledge the reality of
this risk and develop more efficient countermeasures to safeguard
survival in a competitive market. ...'

http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/economic-espionage.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[8] Economic Espionage Feature: Economic Espionage Interview with David
Cid

'... There are more intelligence officers in the United States from
foreign countries collecting information today than there were at the
end of the Cold War. At the end of the Cold War the political and
philosophical struggle was over and it then became an economic war if
you want to characterise as that. With that, these countries decided to
direct their intelligence services from strategic and tactical
information (although they still do that to a certain degree) to
collecting economic information. Many of these countries understand that
they can never compete with us (the USA) or the British, or the French,
or the Germans or the other industrialised nations. But they can steal
information. If you want to get information effectively, an intelligence
service is the ideal collection tool since that is what an intelligence
service is designed to do. ...'

http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/espionage-cid.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[9] Corporate Open Source Information Leakage - A self-assessment
approach using Internet sources by Raphael Rues

'... This paper attempts to demonstrate the state of transparency as
well as the amount of 'open source information' available on selected
anonymous European organisations by using a particular empirical
'corporate information leakage inventory' based on ten indicators. ...'


http://www.iwar.org.uk/infocon/corporate-open-source.htm

         ----------------------------------------------------

[10] USAF Suicide Bombers Intelligence Brief

'... Living in the US, we have considered ourselves "safe" for many
years. 9/11 proved that war/terrorism can ultimately be brought right to
our doorstep.

The attached PowerPoint presentation is aimed at making us all aware of
a new threat... suicide bombers. Not only does it aim to make folks
aware, but it also has some key points on spotting these people (based
on past Intel). ...'
