Krakow hosted the National Cluster on Information Resilience
On 21 November, the third meeting of the National Information Resilience Cluster “Global Information Resilience: Ukraine’s input into international security” took place in Krakow, Poland. The event was organised by the Office of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine with support from the U.S. Department of State, the Office of Cooperative Threat Reduction, CRDF Global, and the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
The meeting focused on sharing experience between the EU, NATO and Ukraine in identifying information threats and countering disinformation.
The third meeting of the National Cluster on Information Resilience was a platform for discussion of the following matters:
the threat of russian information warfare to the West and ways to take effective preventive measures;
effective sanctions policy and best practices for bringing propagandists to justice;
the need to create a global coalition to counter russian disinformation to harmonise the efforts of democratic countries in long-term strategic cooperation;
prospects for changes in the media landscape: strengthening information security in the new geopolitical realities.
The cluster resulted in a discussion of practical steps to create an information coalition between Ukraine and international partners, as russia continues to wage its hybrid war in the information space of the European Union and NATO countries, and only by joining forces can we effectively counter the russian threat.
In total, the meeting was attended by over fifty representatives of government agencies, the private sector, academia, and public figures. Among the key speakers of the event were representatives of the diplomatic mission of Ukraine to the Republic of Poland, NATO Strategic Communications Centre, the Swedish Psychological Protection Agency, Estonian Armed Forces Headquarters, Advisory Board of the European Digital Media Observatory, the Baltic Information Security Centre, Strategic Studies Directorate of the Armed Forces of the French Republic, as well as the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, Security Service of Ukraine, Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine, the Centre for Countering Disinformation, the Centre for Strategic Communications and Information Security, and international experts in the field of information security.
