What is IO?

Information Operations (IO) includes all actions taken to affect enemy information and information systems while defending friendly information and information systems.  IO is focused on the adversary’s key decision-makers and is conducted during all phases of an operation, across the range of military operations, and at every level.  IO, in planning and execution, seeks to coordinate MAGTF Actions and communications and enhance all MAGTF Operations.
