Track 1.1 - Fake News, the Threats to Businesses, and What You Can Do About It
Disinformation campaigns, or “fake news” stories, have dominated the political landscape. Although disinformation has been closely associated with the activities of nation-states and intelligence services, the sheer availability of tools means that barriers to entry are lower than ever. Disinformation campaigns are not always performed for political or military purposes; they can have financial motivations that affect businesses and consumers too. By detecting these activities in their infancy, organizations can take steps to disrupt these campaigns and mitigate their effects.
