Preserving Democracy

Information disorder and the 2022 midterm elections

November 3, 2022

The threats posed by misinformation and disinformation loom large ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.

In addition to worries about foreign information influence operations, we face a growing threat from domestic-born campaigns. What are the most significant risks facing the upcoming elections and what can we do to counter them and protect democratic processes?

At this event, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency founding director and Aspen Digital’s Senior Newmark Fellow in Cybersecurity Policy, Chris Krebs, and award-winning technology journalist and bestselling author, Cecilia Kang, shared an in-depth, timely discussion on the battle for the truth in our elections.

Krebs, who was fired via tweet by former President Donald Trump for upholding the validity of the 2020 election, provided his insights and expertise with Kang, who co-authored the bestseller, An Ugly Truth: Inside Facebook’s Battle for Domination.
