Industry Based Broadening: Information Environment
Research Triangle, NC
Information Environment in the Private Sector
The Institute for Defense and Business’ (IDB) one-of-a-kind program is designed for high-performing individuals in the Department of Defense—civilians and military— directly associated with operations in the information environment. At the Industry Based Broadening Seminar for Information Environment (IB2 IE), you learn what the information environment looks like in the non-military world and how to harness key tools in order to gain the information advantage. You are introduced to the cultures of the organizations that compete in the information environment both domestically and internationally, and the technologies for securing information infrastructure. We leverage a variety of non-military and military perspectives from experts in the private and voluntary sectors, government, and academia on topics including messaging to influence, building a narrative, big data, the internet of things, and understanding cognitive behavior. Subsequently, you will return to your organization with industry best practices for immediate direct application.
