Three years into Donald Trump’s presidency, the United States and the Western world is finally beginning to wake up to the threat of online warfare and the attacks from Russia. The question no one seems to be able to answer is: what can the West do about it?
Central and Eastern European states, however, have been aware of the threat for years. How to Lose the Information War takes the reader on a journey through five Western governments’ responses to Russian information warfare tactics – all of which have failed. She journeys into the campaigns the Russian operatives run, and shows how we can better understand the motivations behind these attacks and how to beat them. Above all, this book shows what is at stake: the future of civil discourse and democracy, and the value of truth itself.
I’m an expert on the intersection of technology and democracy in Central and Eastern Europe who believes that if we de-wonkify the complex issues of national security, we can craft better solutions to the world’s problems.
