Information Warfare Monitor Project ClosureThe Information Warfare Monitor (IWM) project closed in January 2012, having conducted advanced research activity tracking the emergence of cyberspace as a strategic domain.
The IWM was established in 2002 by Ronald Deibert from the Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto and Rafal Rohozinski from the The SecDev Group (formerly the Advanced Network Research Group, University of Cambridge, UK), as a sister project to the Open Net Initiative of which Deibert and Rohozinski are principal investigators along with John Palfrey (Berkman Center for Internet and Society, Harvard University) and Jonathan Zittrain (Oxford Internet Institute). The research of the IWM was supported by the Canada Centre for Global Security Studies (University of Toronto), a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, in-kind and staff contributions from the SecDev Group, and a donation of software from Palantir Technologies Inc.
