As it pertains to C2 as an operational function of information warfare - targeting the enemys information functions, while protecting ours, with the intent of degrading his will or capability to fight. Management e.g., advanced battlefield management e.g., using information and information systems to provide information on which to base military decisions when prosecuting a war and Risk Management for the risks potentially associated with information and information technology IT to be identified and managed cost effectively, it is essential that the process of analyzing and assessing risk is well understood by all parties and executed on a timely basis. Process - Information Warfare processes are making dramatic changes in how we fight wars. The process must allow a commanders vision and view of the battlespace to be shared at the lowest possible level. From the unique perspectives of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen, the process must forge a common understanding of how to use information warfare to enhance joint C2 warfighting capabilities. The Global Information Grid GIG is an example of such a process.
