It’s about manipulating perceptions. The manner in which members of a nation’s society perceive themselves, their co-citizens and the world around them is malleable. Information security operations use identity ideas and perceptions to change people’s behavior. Information warfare either integrates or divides targeted populations through the elimination of cultural reproductive capacity, the promotion of fear and ultimately conflict.
Due to the manipulatable character of societal and political ideas and practices, it is important for policy makers, businesses, analysts and citizens to know how which components of national security are targeted by informational attacks, the channels of influence, who owns them and how they relate to national security, international politics and (foreign) state or organizational strategies.
Black Trident’s expert team uses a sound and reliable methodology to provide insight into which perceptions are being attacked and how to defend them.
