Daytimers with Suzanne Spaulding
April 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
From Russia to right-wing extremists, COVID to the courts, disinformation is a dagger aimed at the heart of our democracy. Disinformation undermines trust in democracy and its institutions. Unless we reinvigorate civic education and engagement – creating a citizenry with the ability to discern truth from deception – we will not be able to counter the threat of disinformation to our democracy.
Suzanne Spaulding is senior adviser for homeland security and director of the Defending Democratic Institutions project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). She also serves as a member of the Cyberspace Solarium Commission. Prior to joining CSIS, Ms. Spaulding was Undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security, leading the National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), which has since been renamed to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).
Join us and learn how the U.S. cybersecurity program is working to combat both domestic and international disinformation to protect our democratic government. Bring your questions with you.
