Information Society: Security, OSINT, and Fake news

Interagency platforms, policies, and initiatives are dependent on information exchange. The informational component seems to be an imperative that simultaneously affects markets and national security systems, in a synchronized and interdependent proportion.

Thus, in addition to institutional developments, it is necessary to think about the links and transaction costs that involve risks and possible solutions to complex problems. A relevant analytical element is the use of Open Source Information for the purpose of studying trends, searching for risks, or observing good practices related to information management and resilience building.

This project is dedicated to the various forms of communication and information between agents, observing trust-building and information-sharing efficiency. The security dimension has in its nature the exchange of information, both for the regulatory aspect and for the efficiency of exchanges.

But the resilience aspect of the institutional policies as to maintain stability is dependent on the way society is dealing with them. As so, conspiracy theories and fake news are an important part of spreading insecurity and policies should be directed to information schemes in place.
