Abstract

Nearly 50-selected national security personnel in Australia (supplemented by others from around the world) have been interviewed and a summary of their perspectives are delivered in this paper. Their views on combating the use of information operations by terrorist groups to conduct information warfare are analysed to produce a structured approach to the perceived problem. The paper covers such issues as who should be active in this task, as well as the desired outcomes, constraints and ways of measuring success.
