Information Warfare Community Management

Welcome to the Information Warfare Community (IWC) Manager’s page.  This web page is designed to provide helpful information on the IWC to include general guidance on accessing into the IWC as well as information for current IWC officers.

The IWC Officer Community Managers collectively manage the health and welfare of officer communities with Oceanography (1800), Cryptologic Warfare (1810), Information Professional (1820), Intelligence (1830), and Cyber Warfare Engineer (1840) designators.  Where appropriate, we are involved in LDO and CWO issues for 680X/780X, 681X/781X, 682X/782X, and 683X/783X designators.  The community manager for the LDO/CWO designators can be found at the LDO/CWO community manager web page.
