There has been a profound change in information environment that impacts the patterns of societies. A lot of resources – financial and human – are dedicated to analyse the information space and decide how and when to communicate. Less time is often dedicated to thinking about how to protect companies from hostile narratives and cyber threats that we are all exposed to as inhabitants of digital space.

This masterclass will focus on threats to information security and will explore how the advantages of digital environment can be turned to enhance a hostile information campaign aimed at planting the seeds of mistrust and discredit to the company. It will help to understand how to deal with challenges of the so-ca...lled ‘post-truth’ era, bring practical insights into how to evaluate the risks in the digital environment and learn useful methods how to recognize hostile information campaigns in a timely and proactive way.
