Information operations and the use of weaponized information are employed by malicious actors both in peace and war times. This duality makes information warfare a particularly unique and troublesome form of antagonism.
Weaponized information is a universal tool that can be adapted to any time, in any condition and circumstances.
For example, while even the most modern and expensive military UAVs have limitations related to weather conditions, flight distance, flight time, and firing range, though weaponized information has no such limitations at all. Plus, in skillful hands, weaponized information can sometimes produce a more profound and lasting effect.
Malicious actors understand this very well and consistently use it to their advantage. They have been adapting information operations both for conventional wars and for non-conventional responses. This mode of offense is considered perfect for operations in permanent and perpetual confrontations between parties.
With continuous technical and scientific research being carried out in this area, the: use, delivery, methods of influence, and dissemination of weaponized information is constantly being improved & evolving.
