July 14th, 2023 meeting

DATE:July 14th, 2023
TIME:2:00pm to 4:00pm (PST)
VENUE:Virtual Meeting, Zoom registration link
TOPIC:Disinformation and Discord
This is a virtual event with a Zoom session for all participants.


The “I” in the “CIA” triad stands for “integrity” of information, and, in our “post-truth” world, that has become more important, not less. We are faced not merely with errors and misinformation, but active and increasingly directed efforts to deceive and mislead. We need to be aware of the types of efforts involved in disinformation, as well as the ways we can fool ourselves, and rely too much on novel ideas such as artificial intelligence. In addition, we need to look at social factors that can make us (and our technologies and enterprises) more susceptible to misinformation and disinformation.

(This presentation is still “in development,” and I’d appreciate feedback and discussion during the session.)


It would be a mistake to think that Rob Slade knows what he is talking about. He might have been misinformed, or he might be deliberately trying to deceive you. (It’s hard to tell.) In order to try and find out which, you can spend more time with him on his daily walks (and study for your CISSP exam) at https://fibrecookery.blogspot.com/2023/02/cissp-seminar-free.html . It is next to impossible to get him to take “bio” writing seriously, but you can try at rob-the-virus@outlook.com
