Despite my plan to work through an academic paper reading backlog and post thoughts about what I’m learning, my first post is about something much more current.
“Information warfare, by contrast, is an attack on cognitive infrastructure, on people themselves, on society, and on systems of information and belief.”
Why am I writing all of this? Because I’ve never thought about cyber security (or, as I prefer, information security) as an attack on our ‘cognitive infrastructure’ before, but it makes such wonderful sense. Now I have to go read a lot about cognitive science research and think about new ideas. Since I’m already most interested in the human element with respect information security, I know this is going to be an important new avenue of exploration.
