Information Security: Misinformation, Disinformation and Propaganda
Advances in communication technologies and the possibilities offered by digital communication networks have diversified the source of news and information, and forms of communication. Being different from the traditional media; new media tools and channels, which are becoming more widespread, offer many opportunities such as fast global communication, instant access to information, allowing two-way communication and disseminating information quickly and through different channels. However, these developments have brought along questions regarding the accuracy of the content that spreads rapidly in the media as well as that of other information platforms, source of the news, and the reliability of the information, documents and discourses put into circulation. These concerns about the reliability of information lead states to take precautions against problems such as fake news, disinformation, misinformation, propaganda and manipulation. In the panel to be held in this context, the issues of ensuring information security on the basis of democracy, rule of law and fundamental rights, information pollution, measures to be taken against fake and misleading news, and the fight against disinformation will be discussed.
