At this event, we 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 also discusses the trends in online influence operations and opportunities to mitigate the risks of malicious use of social media.
