Become DISARM Certified

Become certified on the DISARM Framework with new official courses to train analysts and those looking to enter the counter-disinformation field, approved by the DISARM Foundation.

DISARM is part of the official data exchange system on Foreign Information Manipulation and Interference (FIMI) between the US Government and the European Union. It has been recommend for use by NATO/EU European Centre of Excellence for Countering Hybrid Threats, the EU Cybersecurity Agency, and the EU External Action Service.

The European Union and the United States have adopted a common standard for exchanging structured threat information on FIMI […]

The DISARM framework […together with STIX2 and OpenCTI…] will significantly strengthen our collective efforts to identify, analyse and counter FIMI by enhancing our common situational awareness of FIMI threats.

EU-US Trade and Technology Council, May 2023

One of the really positive outcomes of having frameworks around disinfo research such as DISARM
is that I’m seeing better work overall than the freestyle ‘connect the dots’ work that never had the
evidence to back some of the wilder hypotheses in this space.

The DISARM framework (Disinformation Analysis and Risk Management) enables users to map, analyse, and respond to disinformation. It allows for coordination of actions countering disinformation at scale in real-time, as well as coordination on research, analysis, and policy making.

We have supported the establishment of the DISARM Foundation as an independent entity dedicated to the governance of the Framework. These courses are offered in collaboration with the DISARM Foundation, which exists to keep the DISARM Framework open, protected, promoted and supported — by and for the community of those combatting disinformation.
