Join Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFRLab) researchers on a journey through illustrative case studies of online manipulation and information influence campaigns. During the session, the team will guide the audience through recent OSINT investigations that uncovered novel aspects of the ongoing military, political, and societal issues in Armenia, Moldova, and Sudan and examine Russia's continued attempts to influence not only Western Europe but the world. The researchers will navigate inauthentic coordinated networks on Meta's platforms, Twitter, and Telegram, and guide the audience through the research process step-by-step, having them step into the shoes of a Digital Sherlock!
