Much has been made about the dangers disinformation and deepfakes pose to governments and society. What is less understood but no less serious is the role disinformation and digitally manipulated media can play in harming businesses, corporate reputations and financial markets. Disinformation attacks can result in significant losses of value and enduring damage to brands.
In this event, Matthew Ferraro will discuss contemporary examples of disinformation and deepfakes harming businesses, the various threat actors targeting companies, potential actions businesses can take in response to the threats, and the legal and crisis management/PR implications.
