UPDATE: Extended deadline.

“Do you want to learn how to spot disinformation and what are the most effective ways to fight it? Are you interested in learning how to determine geo-location and identify deepfakes? Do you speak English fluently?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, then we invite you to apply for the free training series “Firewall of Disinformation: Developing civil society organisations’ skills to identify and counter anti-Western disinformation”. Info Ops Polska will share with us its experience on how to use the OSINT method, i.e. how to collect and analyse information from open and public sources to fight anti-Western disinformation.

The training will take place online, in English, from 16-19 October. The training sessions will last about half a day.

At the training we will learn about:

  • Information Operations (IO),
  • how the Kremlin influences public opinion,
  • cognitive errors and how they shape our opinions and biases,
  • how to use digital tools to protect ourselves online,
  • how conspiracy theories work, etc.
