Disinformation and Deepfakes: Identifying Fake News to Fight Business Threats

Disinformation and Deepfakes: Identifying Fake News to Fight Business Threats

Speaking Engagement
Counsel Matthew Ferraro, a former US intelligence officer, will discuss the dangers that disinformation and synthetic media, or deepfakes, pose to politics, society and business during this webinar hosted by Flashpoint. Through deepfakes and other means, disinformation attacks on the private sector are an ambient and growing business risk. Whether they come from trolls looking to sow chaos, market manipulators aiming to make a fast payday, or foreign governments attempting to boost “national champion” companies in a given industry, misinformation attacks in the private sector are growing in both size and complexity. Mr. Ferraro will discuss concrete steps companies of all sizes can take to prepare for and mitigate these threats in the evolving information environment.
