CANADA AND THE WORLD: SAFEGUARDING SECURITY IN THE AGE OF DISINFORMATION

21 June 2024, 8:30 am EST @ Faculty of Social Sciences Building, Room 4007, 120 University Private, K1N 6N5

 

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Information manipulation is an emerging threat to democratic societies. Amidst global geopolitical instability, malicious actors are increasingly using incendiary disinformation to compromise national security. Leveraging recent technological advancements these actors have made it difficult for populations to distinguish between fake and genuine content, a challenge which has the potential to severely undermine democratic processes and institutions.

Co-hosted by the Information Integrity Lab and The Canadian International Council with support from DND’s MINDS program, this one-day conference will serve as a forum for understanding the disinformation threat landscape, exploring the associated risks and solutions, and addressing how we can collectively strengthen our capabilities in dealing with malign information influence, reinforcing our informational integrity.
