The Center for Media Engagement is proud to host COGSEC, an online conference that will bring together a community of practitioners on the front lines of dealing with and actively combatting the efforts of malign actors online.
COGSEC will be hosted virtually March 4-5 and will serve as a forum for sharing what works and what doesn’t, for piecing together knowledge about the state-of-the-art tactics being used by malicious actors in the field, and for building the ethical norms of security research in this domain.
The conference will feature practical workshops on hunting and neutralizing online influence campaigns. We invite students, scholars, journalists, activists, NGO professionals, and anyone with an interest in the real-world tools and techniques being used to deal with media manipulation threats in the field.
Tickets are $10 for general admission, $5 for anyone with a valid .edu email address, and free for students at UT-Austin.
