The contested information environment is dominated by pervasive social media platforms and a growing number of polarising media outlets. State and non-state actors are highly active in spreading and amplifying disinformation and divisive propaganda. Unchecked, such approaches can undermine the relations between states and rule of law. It can further destabilise relationships between citizens and their institutions. Influence campaigns have harnessed technologies to create large-scale, seemingly credible activity and communications. Therefore, today’s counter propaganda and disinformation responses must comprise an ethical, technology-enabled and integrated capability, directed by clear policy and strategy. Templar’s experts have extensive experience of supporting governments and their agencies in NATO countries, Middle East and North Africa. We provide a comprehensive service including:
- Surface and deep web monitoring;
- Systematic counter-disinformation assessment, response options planning, and audience analysis;
- Capacity building for sustainable operations, addressing technology, processes and skills;
- Policy, strategy and plans development;
- Nested campaign design, consistent with wider communications strategy and activities.
