How Competitive Intelligence Mitigates Disinformation Campaigns

March 27, 2018

CI+Strategy Event
Presenter: Derek Johnson, CFA
Presenter: John Thomson

Conference Link: Register
Location: San Francisco
Date: Tuesday, March 27, 2018
Time: 4:20pm – 5:30pm PST


In a world that has increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, possessing a foresight capability is becoming more of a necessity.

Disinformation can be defined as false information that is spread for the purposes of misleading, disrupting, or undermining the confidence of a targeted individual, group or organization. Although very prevalent in recent headlines, disinformation is not just a tool used by state actors and political campaigns – it is also used within the business world for a variety of purposes, and the rise of social media brings the spread and influence of disinformation to an entirely new level. Learn how and why disinformation campaigns are undertaken, hear real-life “war stories” and see examples of actual disinformation, and learn how to recognize, investigate, and react to disinformation from a CI perspective.
