Blend of "Information" and "Warfare"

Infowar is the use of information and information systems as weapons in a conflict in which the information and information systems themselves are the targets.

Infowar has been divided into three classes:

1. Individual Privacy

2. Industrial and Economic Espionage

3. Global information warfare, i.e. Nation State versus Nation State.

Most organizations will not need to be concerned over classes I and III, but clearly Class II is relevant to any organization wishing to protect its confidential information.

Also Cyberwar and Netwar.
