The U.S. is taking concrete steps to combat disinformation with the passage of the defense authorization act – N.D.A.A. (S. 1790)
The law provides the Director of National Intelligence to establish a Social Media Data and Threats Analysis Center. The Center would “host a searchable archive aggregating information related to foreign influence and disinformation operations to build a collective understanding of the threats and facilitate future examination consistent with privacy protections.”
The law also requires a report to be written about the Kremlin’s disinformation efforts that will be submitted to Congress.
Cheers to the victory!
