Information Operations: Countering Violent Extremism Conference
- Countering Extremism and Misinformation Though Open Source Intelligence and Strategic Communications
- 29 June, 2015 - 1 July, 2015, London, United Kingdom
Building on the success of our Information Operations Global series, we are delighted to announce our inaugural event: Countering Violent Extremism. Whilst our Information Operations series focused predominantly on the military influence professional, we have decided to broaden the remit of this years symposium by bringing in senior government, military and intelligence professionals to create a forum focused on countering violent extremism, the use of open source intelligence to pursue non-state actors (including social networks etc.) and the subsequent utility of strategic communications activity for both military and cross-government entities.
Consolidating lessons learnt over the past 12 months, our agenda provides high level insight into the long term strategic plans surrounding the direction of, and investment into, open source intelligence analysis, target audience analysis and the creation of outreach campaigns to promote individual narratives whilst dispelling adversarial misinformation.
Global Digital Security Market 2016-2020
If you are involved in any facet of countering violent extremism, from strategic communications and outreach activity through to digital intelligence and civilian contractors, Countering Violent Extremism 2015 will provide you with the most concise and effective way to learn from, and engage with, the thought leaders in your field.
Scott Wetzel, USAF
"This year has actually been a step-change better than the last few I've attended... What we've covered has been a wide-ranging and most interesting."
Lt Col James Hancock, JIOTAT
"Must attend event for IO practitioners to stay abreast, learn new and share own knowledge/application. I have 13 years of US Army experience, multiple combat tours and have written extensively on IO but I was very satisfied with what I learned. Even experienced IO practitioners need to refresh their skills and knowledge."
"It was well balanced. This conference is always valuable as it is a unique forum in which to learn how IO is doing and where we are heading."
