    In today’s environment, the way citizens view facts, define certainty, and classify information no longer adheres to traditional rules. Fundamental changes have made it easier for domestic and foreign threats to exploit and amplify vital information to sow discord, push foreign nations’ policy agendas, cause panic, and ultimately undermine confidence and public trust in the core institutions of our democracy.  As COVID-19 and civil discourse intensifies, a new, broader, and perilous disinformation environment generates distrust, deception, and violence.

    During this session, we’ll hear from experts on how to not only increase “open-source” intelligence gathering but how to counter these destructive efforts. Additionally, the forum will provide advice for navigating through and exposing falsities and methodologies for countering the narrative. This includes uncovering and exposing publicly disinformation being spread by adversaries and sources touting them—this is and remains a public-facing role that is extraordinary but vital in the modern era of influence campaigns.
