Information Warfare: A Seminar INFORMATION WARFARE:
From Security to Infrastructure Protection to the Military: An Overview of Security, Electronic
Civil Defense and the Networked Society

By Winn Schwartau

Ever since Assistant Secretary of Defense John lHamre in April 1998 and July, 1999 declared ""We Are At War", the media has stood up and noticed. Cyberwar. Infowar. Netwar.

These are all different flavors of a conflict between adversaries without bombs, bullets and bayonets. Way back in 1991, your seminar leader Winn Schwartau coined the term Electronic Pearl Harbor and warned Congress that our computers were poorly protected against an adversary.

This unique session will enlighten you, entertain you and just maybe scare you. You do not need to be a technocrat or a bureaucrat to understand that Info was preordained by the very nature of the technology around us. Our absolute reliance upon technology (not just the Internet!) is not only our greatest asset but also our greatest vulnerability.

You will learn about all three classes of Information Warfare: Personal, Corporate and Global and how they evolved. What global causes and changes have occurred which make ideal conditions for Infowar? Who is waging info and why? How has the nature of global competitiveness and cultural diversity added to the impact?

This seminar is full of exciting interactive discussions, debate and videos to keep everyone awake for the whole day!
