Cogsec Collab MISP Community

A community dedicated to information operations We’re proud to announce the CogSec Collab MISP Community - the first public MISP sharing group dedicated to misinformation and information campaigns.

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.

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.
