START Webinar Series: Information Warfare

Video Synopsis

In this video, Dr. Steve S. Sin offers a virtual lecture on “Information Warfare.” Misinformation, disinformation, "fake news", "deep fake", "facts under threat", influence operation, these are but a few terms that are swirling about in our society today that are all part of a discipline that has existed - and have been evolving - as long as history itself: information warfare. We will take a journey through the history and evolution of information warfare and explore how the information environment we are living in today - in the context of information warfare - is both similar and different from our past.
