Abstract : Information Warfare in its broadest definition has existed since armed conflict began. As the pace of battle accelerates and information collection intensifies it is necessary to have a means of synergistically combining the advanced technological tools, organizational structure and mathematical analysis of information target vulnerabilities. This essay provides a model to accomplish such a goal by establishing a framework to evaluate methods of employment, types of attack and desired results when prioritizing information targets.
