Addressing MDM Threats While Protecting Free Speech
Identify and Address MDM (Mis- Dis- and Mal-information) Threats to Critical Infrastructure, While Protecting Free Speech Rights.
Event Overview. Mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) continue to destructively permeate through society, but does it pose a significant threat to our Nation’s Critical Infrastructure? The threat can be difficult to identify as it is be spread deliberately and accidentally, from both foreign and domestic actors. The challenge in mitigating this threat is heightened as we must respect our Constitutionally protected right to free speech. The event, which is the initial iteration of Gate 15’s Blue Jean Workshops series will tackle this complex issue head on, by bringing together Critical Infrastructure owners and operators along with security and free speech subject matter experts, to begin to ask how to address both of these intractable forces in a free society. The collaborative, solutions-focused discussion will inform a future report which will identify specific recommendations for both private and public sector stakeholders.
