CISA Insights: COVID-19 Disinformation Activity
As the nation and the world continues to fight against COVID-19, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) continues to work on products and other resources intended to help critical infrastructure stakeholders improve their resilience and reduce their exposure to COVID-19 related risks.
Today, CISA issued a new CISA Insights titled, “COVID-19 Disinformation Activity.” This CISA Insights provides guidance to deter false information and conspiracy theories related to COVID-19. It provides factual information to counteract inaccurate claims and provides simple steps the public can take to fact check information and minimize the risk of spreading false or misleading content.
As the nation’s risk advisor, we are sharing information to help you and your team reduce risks associated with COVID-19. That includes our latest product, a CISA Insights on disinformation campaigns, often from foreign adversaries, that are seeking to take advantage of COVID-19 concerns.
We encourage you to share this publication with anyone who might be able to use it. We will continue to keep you updated as more information becomes available.
