Organise a DISARM Certification training for your team.

Advance your organisation with a private training session on the use of the DISARM framework – valuable for enabling your threat-hunters, analysts, report-writers, and executives, to effectively identify, map, and communicate about disinformation incidents.

Adopted as part of the formal data exchange on Foreign Information Manipulation by the EU and the US, it is used and recommended by leading international organisations.

The DISARM Certification Course is focused on the real-world use of the DISARM framework, developed to give you the knowhow to effectively navigate, analyse, and report using the DISARM framework on disinformation incidents. Designed for practitioners and driven individuals looking to enter the counter-disinformation field.
