ABSTRACT

National Military Strategy: Information Warfare   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The U. S. Government has realized that new technologies will have a significant impact not only on everyday life but also on national security and the conduct of future warfare. While evaluating the powerful potential of information, policymakers are also attempting to understand a variety of problems surrounding it. This paper analyzes IW, specifically the protection of information, as a component of the 1995 National Military Strategy (NMS). It reviews the ends, ways, and means of our IW strategy. It focuses on the actions of the U. S. Government, the Department of Defense (DoD), and Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), especially on the U. S. Army's role. It examines the Army's IW strategy and provides some recommendations for what it needs to do to further support national policy."
