When Nina Jankowicz's first book on online disinformation was profiled in The New Yorker, she expected attention, but not an avalanche of abuse and harassment, predominantly from men online.

All women in politics, journalism, and academia now face untold levels of harassment and abuse in online spaces. Together with the world's leading extremism researchers, Jankowicz wrote one of the definitive reports on this troubling phenomenon.

Drawing on rigorous research into the treatment of Kamala Harris—the first woman vice-president—and other political and public figures, Nina also uses her own experiences to provide a step-by-step plan for dealing with harassment, abuse, doxing and disinformation in online spaces.

Jankowicz will be in conversation with Cindy Otis, a tech executive and and an internationally-recognized expert on disinformation threat analysis and countermessaging. Prior to joining the private sector in 2017, she served in the CIA as a military analyst, intelligence briefer, and a manager in the Directorate of Intelligence. While at the CIA, she specialized in security issues in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. She is the author of the critically acclaimed book True or False: A CIA Analyst’s Guide to Spotting Fake News, and the forthcoming novel At the Speed of Lies, coming out with Scholastic in 2023. She is a frequent media commentator and writes regularly about disinformation and national security issues, often cited by publications, such as The Washington Post, New York Times, BBC, NPR, and CNN. She is also a member of USA Today’s Board of Contributors. She is a former CIA officer Senior non-Resident Fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab and currently, an Associate at Argonne National Lab.
