Information strategist

An information strategist analyzes the information flows within an organization and directs its information resources to better serve the organization’s strategic goals. [1] They work with information technology to direct high quality information from a variety of sources to users, based on their profiles and needs. [2] In warfare, information strategists not only seek to improve information flows for their own side but also to disrupt the information flows of the enemy in order to demoralize and deceive them. [3]
