Disinformation as a Cybersecurity Problem
Renée DiResta, 2019 Mozilla Fellow in Media, Misinformation, and Trust; and Technical Research Manager at the Stanford Internet Observatory
Disinformation campaigns and influence operations are not only a challenge for elections or politicians - these attacks have extended to corporations and individual targets in business as well. A major advancement in the practice of defensive information security in cybersecurity has been the adoption of intelligence-driven defense, where defensive teams base their plans and priorities on models of attacker capabilities and techniques that are built on observational evidence of real campaigns. One example of this practice is known as the “kill chain”, which maps the process by which an adversary executes an attack. This session assesses the applicability of this model in the creation of defensive plans for disinformation, with a focus on emerging technologies, evolving adversary capabilities, and targets beyond the political.
