Net Centric Warfare Webinar

Coevolution of NCW: Challenges with Cyberspace and Organizational Development

This FREE webinar will be on:
Thursday, December 16, 2010, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET
Presenter: Maj. Trisha Carpenter

The U.S. military is facing an entire new front in warfare, the cyber domain. Controlling and dominating this new technological theater is becoming critically important as U.S. Military leadership relies heavily on computer networks to communicate, gather INTEL, and even launch weapons and coordinated strikes. At the same time the military is striving to perfect the concept of Net Centric Warfare to effectively use technology to gain advantage and superiority over enemy forces. Two main obstacles may stand in the way of a successful transformation from the current haphazard state of cyberspace operations to a more productive future state required of Network Centric Warfare (NCW). The first obstacle is the military’s lack in knowledge of cyberspace operations. The second obstacle is the difficulty in understanding organizational change. This Webinar first presents a working definition of NCW to show how cyberspace and organizational change are related in the form of coevolution. It then discusses the organizational growth challenges faced by any organization operating in this domain, with a focus on the security missions likely to be given to cyber commands.

In this webinar participants will learn:

• An Operational Illustration of NCW

• Key Challenges in Cyberspace:

• Technical Environment: Cyber Triad

• Non-Technical Environment: Organizational Design
