Cyber Warfare: The Modern Cold War?

Cyber Warfare: The Modern Cold War? | Influence and Stabilisation | Scoop.it
It's difficult to imagine how cyber warfare could wreak the same havoc as traditional, conventional war.

Strategic Communications & Influence Operations; Do We Really Get it?

David James's insight:

Very frustrating that the need for better influence capability is well known but there doesn't appear to be any opportunities for expert practitioners to get involved. If UK MOD needs influence experts where are the jobs? Also measuring the effectiveness of strategic communications is easy with the right tools.

Winning the Future a Perspective on Defence Capability Development

Short thought on defence capability development

David James's insight:

Been doing some reading and thinking. The requirements for what capability we need to be successful in the world have been well articulated by brighter and more influential men and women than me;

So why is defence capability still so focused on buying massive equipment that is out of date before it's been built. Where are the programmes that will deliver success? Where is the UK's asymmetric success factory?
