Disinformation: How Spies Can Help Find Truth

Mar 14, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

With the evolution of technology, a breakdown of trust in once-trusted institutions and U.S. adversaries creating their own facts and pushing them on an unwitting U.S. public, how can lessons from the Intelligence Community guide a new path for truth? Three women with deep experience within the Intelligence Community — the Sisterhood of Spies — tackle this topic with a look at how government, media platforms, technology platforms, academia and the private sector must take on a new mission together. These current and former high-ranking women in the Intelligence Community share secrets on how we do it.
