                        At a time when nation-state adversaries leverage information warfare tactics to affect American politics, ordinary Americans need tools to inoculate themselves against rumors, mistruths, and other messages designed to manipulate the citizenry. A panel of career intelligence professionals, journalists, psychology researchers, and social media executives will discuss ways in which individual citizens can better interpret information of varying credibility and thereby mitigate disinformation by hostile foreign powers.
