Program Objectives Information Operations (IO) represents a key instrument of current and anticipated national security policy. IO provides a means of supporting, through information and education, allies and political elements abroad who share US interests in many parts of the world. IO also provides a means of deterring and prevailing against state and nonstate adversaries and other competitors seeking to undermine US security interests, ideals, and quality of life. This instrument offers a wide range of digital and human influence capabilities. It ensures that the US is more able to safeguard its information infrastructure to make and implement policy, to be able to deter, and if necessary to use its information capabilities to prevail against attempts by others to weaken, manipulate or cripple US information programs, and to counter the deception and influence capabilities of competitors. IO also can be used help prevent conflict and to influence the outcomes of political and military conflict. The DMGS program is designed to equip students with the necessary knowledge, concepts and theories to understand the critical role that IO plays in supporting and enhancing US national security policy. That role is now recognized as nationally important in the DoD’s Joint Publication 3-13, which has been used to educate and deploy increasing number of IO specialists. (Other agencies have not yet publically identified their IO doctrine and/or related major practices.) The DMGS program will focus on the strategic aims, skill sets, and historical and innovative techniques coming online that will continue to provide opportunities... [-]
