Four Future Trends of Disinformation Campaigns

by | Aug 31, 2020 | Blog, Reputation Defense

While disinformation has played a powerful role in the geopolitical world over the last four years, enterprise is increasingly needing to be prepared to address numerous types of disinformation as well.

Much of the discourse on ‘fake news’ these days conflates three notions: misinformation, disinformation, and mal-information. It’s important to understand messages that are true from those that are false, and messages that are created, produced, or distributed by coordinated inauthentic behavior who intend to do harm from those that are not.
