The Atlantic Council and the Digital Forensic Research lab are happy to invite you and all your team to join the global network of #DigitalSherlocks at the Atlantic Council’s flagship initiative, the 360/OS open source summit. This year will be the third, and largest yet, iteration of 360/OS and it will take place in London, UK at the iconic Roundhouse theater on June 20-21.
360/OS will capture an audience of over 200 of the top individuals across the tech, media, civil society, research, and government sectors, all of whom are at the forefront of open source, seeking to secure the digital information environment in an era of growing uncertainties. Overall, 360/OS is an opportunity to educate and amplify. We teach open source research skills to provide people the tools they need to both protect themselves in the digital information environment and harness the opportunities it enables.
Below are some more details on the event from the DFRLab team:
DFRLab and 360/OS
“At DFRLab, we say our mission is to identify, expose, and explain disinformation where and when it occurs; to promote objective fact as a foundation of government for and by the people; to protect democratic institutions and norms from those who would seek to undermine them in the digital engagement space.
Promoting objective facts as a foundation for free and open societies is a challenge that doesn’t recognize neatly defined borders or industries. It is truly a collective challenge, and we all have a role in the solution. DFRLab is intentionally situated between government, media, and the private sector to address this unique situation. 360/OS is the perfect opportunity to recognize joint efforts and showcase the best work aimed at defending democracy and building digital resilience.
This year, 360/OS open source summit will bring together civil society, innovators, media, and leaders from around the world. Over two days of interactive sessions and hands-on trainings, participants will discover the latest techniques in open source, social media, emerging technology, and digital forensic research, to forge digital resilience and defend the integrity of government for and by people.
By providing more policymakers, journalists, and the public with the skills to identify disinformation and navigate the digital space more aptly, we directly enable the population with the core skills that will bolster digital resilience.”
