Emerging Trends in Social Media

Date: 
9th March 2020
Event location/address: 
Riga, Latvia

At this event, we will look specifically at the threat aspect of social media – while algorithms can have effects on our online behaviours, they can also influence actions in real life. When online, we are not fully informed about how much data we leave behind and for what purposes it might be used. While it is worrying for every social media user, it is especially sensitive in the aspect of operational security. The conference will also discuss the trends in online influence operations and opportunities to mitigate the risks of malicious use of social media.

The participation fee for the event is 50 EUR per person. Acceptable forms of payment for the seminar include credit card or invoice and a bank transfer. When registering for the event, please choose your preferred payment option.
