#FakeNews and the Next Information Security Crisis
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM


#FakeNews and the Next Information Security Crisis

Monday, October 29, 6.30 - 7.45 pm Information security is based on three pillars: confidentiality, availability, and integrity of information. To date, the information security community has focused myopically on the first two, and big breaches of both confidentiality (Equifax) and availability (the Dyn DDOS) come readily to mind.  But amidst that focus, the community missed what some may call the real "cyber 9/11," the large-scale, coordinated disinformation campaigns executed around the 2016 election cycle that continue to this day. We now recognize the so-called #FakeNews problem as the next big crisis in cybersecurity. Join CGA to discuss narrative warfare with panelists who will enumerate the tactics, techniques, and motivations of various threat actors; identify intelligence that can help us predict where the threat will come from next; and discuss interventions with a pragmatic eye toward alleviating the crisis before it's too late. Moderator: Danny Rogers, Co-Founder and CTO, The Global Disinformation Index Panelists: John Kelly, Co-Founder and CEO, Graphika Deb Lavoy, Founder and CEO, Narrative Builders Christopher Walker, Vice President for Studies and Analysis, National Endowment for Democracy
