The MisinfosecWG Counters Workshop

The Misinfosec Working Group MisinfosecWG timeline. We built infosec-based standards for describing and sharing information about disinformation incidents The Misinfosec Working Group (“misinfosecWG”) is part of the Credibility Coalition. It was formed around a standard for action: we wanted a way for the many groups and individuals that we saw starting to investigate disinformation incidents to quickly share information about them, in the same ways that information security groups share information through information exchanges like ISACs and ISAOs, and disclosure schemes like bug bounties.

The MisinfoSec Framework Takes Shape

Developing the AMITT (Adversarial Misinformation and Influence Tactics and Techniques) framework By John Gray and Sara-Jayne Terp On May 24, 2019, the CredCo MisinfoSec Working Group met for the day at the Carter Center in as part of CredConX Atlanta. The purpose of the day was to draft a working MisinfoSec framework that incorporates the stages and techniques of misinformation, and the responses to it. We came up with a name for our framework: AMITT (Adversarial Misinformation and Influence Tactics and Techniques) provides a framework for understanding and responding to organized misinformation attacks based on existing information security principles.
