As an officer in the Navy years ago, InfoWarCon helped me think through emerging trends and gave me (and many others) new mental models for the age of cyber conflict. This was also the place I met many friends who I have continued to learn from ever since. Event leader and founder Winn Schwartau coined the term Information Warfare, a concept that is now almost a household word.
The series continues and is still helping many of us think through what is next and how to optimize. It is also a great way to connect with those at the forefront of information warfare concept development. The event always brings together a highly elite group of political, military, academic, DIYer, and commercial cyber-leaders and thinkers from around the world. It examines the current, future, and potential hostile use of cyber and related information technologies including how to neutralize the current ones.
This year InfoWarCon runs November 1-3 with Training on Oct. 30 and 31 at the National Conference Center, Leesburg, VA.
From the InfoWarCon18 website:
Our Board of Advisors has selected speakers and invited participants based on originality, creativity, demonstrability, controversy, and communications skills in order to provide IWC 18 participants with the most insightful and thought provoking content. IWC has been one of the few places where a Deputy Secretary, a Professor, a college intern, and a member of a think tank are able to sit down and exchange ideas on what happens next.
The last year has been a hot bed of cyber activity that needs to be analyzed and discussed at the international strategic level. Among those, broad topics of particular interest are: Undeclared Cyberwar, Technology, and Policy.
