Attendees will learn how to use a data-driven analytic framework to identify entity-centric patterns of behavior and uncover actionable intelligence. We will provide a use case utilizing this framework that determined during the Russian elections, major non-election stories actually drove focus on the elections. Russian officials leveraged the attention from the aforementioned stories to accuse other countries of meddling in Russia’s domestic elections, even if countries were only reacting to Russian actions. The referenced analytics cut through the noisy modern information environment and revealed the origin, path, and resonance of friendly and adversarial messaging, giving decision-makers a strategic advantage in influence efforts.
