Abstract : The expansion of information technologies and the close correlation between access to these technologies and the economic welfare of nations highlights an emerging dimension through which economic materials could be interdicted. There is little historical precedence to analyze the effectiveness of such sanctions during the deterrence (pre-conflict) phase of a crisis. The process of enacting and enforcing information sanctions targeted at a Nation's strategic information systems has not been refined. In order to analyze the process through which information sanctions could be enacted and enforced, a review of past sanctions enforcement operations will provide a foundation for the process. With this foundation, the evolution of information systems and their growing association with a global economy will be reviewed to provide insights into the potential effectiveness of information sanctions. The process of enacting information sanctions, choosing information system targets, and deciding upon which agency is most capable of enforcing information sanctions will be hypothesized.
