With the 2020 U.S. elections around the corner, heightened scrutiny of disinformation shared through social media sites is becoming a point of concern for democracy. We keep hearing election interference and influence but what does it really mean? This issue doesn’t seem to be isolated to the U.S. alone and is instead raising concerns on a global scale.

 

Big tech companies are pursuing aggressive approaches to keep trolls, bots, and fake accounts from spreading disinformation about political candidates and campaigns, but is it working? The challenge of the 21st century is a head of us.

 

Join us for an intimate conversation with James Azar, Co-Founder and CMO of CyberHub USA, as he does a deep dive into how big names like Facebook, Twitter, and Google are using cyber security tactics to keep democracy safe.
