The Information Warfare Site (IWS)

Based in the UK, IWS is "an online resource that aims to stimulate debate about a range of subjects from information security to information operations and e-commerce," with an emphasis on offensive and defensive information operations. To these ends, it offers a number of resources, including selected documents, articles, and online journals that relate to twelve topics, such as computer security, military affairs, crime & espionage, and legal issues, among others. In January 2001, the site launched its INFOCON Threat Centre, a research project that will monitor and analyze cyberthreat trends across the world and in specific regions each month. From the homepage, visitors may also access the latest stories, a security news ticker, recently added documents, site news, an internal search engine, and the IWS discussion forum. This is a good current awareness resource for anyone interested in information and Internet security.
