Russia’s interference operations pose a national security threat to democracies across the transatlantic space. Understanding the patterns and evolution of these operations over the past two decades is critical to combatting them. Please join the Alliance for Securing Democracy for a presentation of initial findings from a new interactive tool that enables such analysis. High-level officials from both sides of the Atlantic will address the evolving threat and discuss strategies to defend against it.
