Unconventional warfare is now conventional, and information warfare is a key to the new warfare. You can respond to these unprecedented challenges by creating original organizational structures able to adapt to ever-changing strategies and tactics. This authoritative book gives you practical solutions for organizing and executing organizational warfare, gathering intelligence, deploying antiterrorism measures, and securing information. The book presents a range of computational methods that help you more effectively analyze, identify, and exploit vulnerabilities in the structure and decision-making processes of unknown or poorly understood enemy organizations.

You learn how to mitigate attacks on organizational decision-making, and predict the impact of attacks on robustness, quality, and timeliness of your organization, as well as the enemy's. Moreover, this valuable resource shows you how to manage, in real-time, the processes of the attacking enemy or defending friendly organizations. By integrating artificial intelligence, game theory, control theory, management science, organizational science, and cognitive modeling, this book lets you rethink the relations between organization, warfare and information.
