British Army to present at SMi’s 9th annual Social Media in

SMi reports: British Army, UK MoD and Royal Navy to present at Social Media in the Defence and Military Sector conference in November ahead of deployment of ‘Social Media Warfare’ division

The British Army have announced the formation of a cyber warfare unit to fight "above and below the threshold of conventional conflict".

"We need to develop our asymmetric edge and bring focus to the orchestration of intelligence, information operations, cyber, electronic warfare and unconventional warfare,” announced Lieutenant General Ivan Jones, the commander of Britain's field army.

The U.K.'s new special cyber operations unit, 6 Division (6 Div), will move beyond the typical cyber capabilities within the military sphere into full-blown social media "information warfare." With the primary adversary Russia proliferating fake news and political propaganda across major social media platforms, this operation has turned into a national security strategy.
