LIVE Fireside Chat — Disinformation: As Dangerous as Cyber and Physical Threats
We live in a digital world where most information is now found online. Threat actors have been taking advantage of the digital landscape to spread disinformation, propaganda and conspiracy theories to manipulate the public and sow doubt, discord and chaos. We have seen how disinformation can impact elections, and now it is being used to denigrate COVID-19 vaccinations. How can we distinguish between fact and opinion, truth and supposition? How can we spot fake news and tackle disinformation?
In this session, Christopher Krebs defines disinformation, the challenges it poses to cybersecurity teams and how to fight it.
