Democracy in the Era of Disinformation

The panel will discuss the implications of disinformation in the 2020 election and beyond. Growing cybersecurity threats are disrupting democracies and relationships around the world. Truman National Security Project proposes to convene a three to five-person panel and moderator with expertise in information warfare, mass cognitive hacking, digital risk in political communication, information operations, and political warfare. The purpose of this panel is to inform policy-makers, tech industry, and cybersecurity experts. The moderator will guide discussion with informed questioning, and Q&A with the audience. We are a nation-wide network of national security experts many of whom have expertise in this field and are actively engaged and serving on the front edge challenge.
