This chapter discusses the rapid entry of information conflicts into civilian and commercial arenas by highlighting 10 trends in information warfare. The growing societal reliance on cyber technologies has increased exposure to dangerous sources of information warfare threats. Corporate leaders must be aware of the diversity of potential attacks, including from high-tech espionage, organized crime, perception battles, and attacks from ordinary hackers or groups sponsored by nation-states or business competitors. Based on a literature review conducted by the authors, we offer an information warfare framework that contains the ten trends to promote a greater understanding of the growing cyber threat facing the commercial environment.
