Brig. Gen. Loretta Reynolds: Information Warfare Key to Access Adversaries’ Thought Process

cyberBrig. Gen. Loretta Reynolds, commander of the Marine Forces Cyber Command, said the U.S. Marine Corps aims to build on information warfare to invade enemies’ networks and reveal their thought processes, Marine Corps Times reported Sunday.

Matthew Schehl writes Reynolds said at a panel discussion during the Sea-Air-Space expo that information warfare goes beyond cyberdefense and involves operations to dominate the “information environment.”

“It’s also trying to get inside the enemy’s cognitive space in a way to have him make choices that you want him to make, when you want him to make it,” said Reynolds.

Reynolds added there is a need for cultural adjustment in the service branch to further address cyber threats, Schehl wrote.

Rear Adm. Kevin Lunday, training and exercises director at U.S. Cyber Command and also on the panel, said servicemen have to change mindsets and understand they are using mission platforms instead of computers.
