  • Agata Popescu

    () ("Dimitrie Cantemir" Christian University)


Strictly military information warfare can be defined as all informational operations at tactical, operational and strategic level, in peacetime, crisis and conflict escalation, with the common goals of achieving or influencing certain targets. Information warfare has a military component, command and control warfare which has the following meaning according to NATO: "integrated use of all military capabilities including operations security, deception, psychological operations, electronic warfare and physical destruction, supported by all sources of intelligence, communications and information systems to deny access to information, influence, damaging or destroying command and control capability of an adversary, while their military capabilities are protected against similar actions".
