The Cognitive Security Conference (COGSEC)
March 4 - 5, 2021 | 12:00 - 6:30 PM (EST) | 12:00 - 5:30 PM (EST) | Zoom
On March 4-5, the Strauss Center partnered with Moody’s Center for Media Engagement (CME) to host COGSEC, a new conference that focused on the real-world practice of countering online influence operations. The conference was held virtually.
COGSEC is aimed at bringing together a community of practitioners on the front lines of dealing with and actively combatting the efforts of malign actors online. The conference will feature practical, hands-on workshops on hunting and neutralizing disinformation campaigns, and competitions exposing vulnerabilities that persist in our information landscape.
The conference brought together a broad lineup of scholars, journalists, and practitioners at the cutting edge of investigating and thwarting online influence campaigns to share knowledge and build ethical norms of cognitive security research.
