The Swiss Chamber of Commerce and the Swedish Swiss Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with Combitech and Saab have the great pleasure to present the upcoming webinar on the importance for businesses to combat misleading and incorrect information in times of crisis on 27 May 2020.
Thanks to the internet and social media, the manipulation of our perceptions is taking place on previously unimaginable scales of time, space and intentionality. That, precisely, is the source of one of the greatest vulnerabilities we as individuals, companies and as a society must deal with. Today, many actors are exploiting these vulnerabilities, either for the purposes of causing harm, or for political, personal or financial gain. It is important for all organisations to be able to identify and counter hostile influence operations, which is a growing threat. We need to add these skills to our toolbox.
Influence operations encompasses a wide range of tactics, from orchestrating targeted breaches followed by data leaks to employing troll armies to push disinformation. So far, states have mainly used these capabilities for political and military purposes, like nudging voters and enflaming cultural conflict. These threats are a reality for businesses today – states and other hostile actors are increasingly using their information-warfare capabilities to economic conflicts. Hostile actions aiming to generate investor, regulatory, consumer, or political backlash against targeted sectors and companies by fabricating or inflaming public relations and legal controversies.
