Video from the event "NATO in the Disinformation Age: Understanding the Threat"

 

A Seminar with the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) and the NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence.

In today’s information space, spreading fake news is as easy as a ‘Like,’ ‘Tweet’ or ‘Share.’ While NATO is deploying to Europe’s frontline, the Kremlin is field-testing new subversive techniques against Allied forces. What are the new lessons for force protection in the information space? What are the emerging do’s, don’ts and dangers of the information age?
