Information Technology (IT) is the use of computers and software to manage information. It’s the career discipline responsible for storing information, protecting information, processing the information, transmitting the information as necessary, and later retrieving information as necessary. In the DoD, IT is responsible for Information Operations (IO), Cybersecurity, Information Superiority, and Interoperability (Net-Centric Operations).
