ABSTRACT

Homeland Security Advisory Council, Disinformation Best Practices and Safeguards Subcommittee: Final Report   [open pdf - 875KB]

From the Introduction: "On May 18, 2022, Secretary Mayorkas asked a Subcommittee of the Department of Homeland Security's Homeland Security Advisory Council to make recommendations for how the Department can most effectively and appropriately address disinformation that poses a threat to the homeland while protecting civil rights and providing greater transparency across this work. This report presents our assessment and recommendations. Part I defines our terms. Part II provides concrete examples of disinformation's deleterious impacts on DHS's Congressionally mandated missions. Part III describes DHS's current activities. Part IV contains our recommendations. Our review preceded the release by the DHS Inspector General (IG) of its report, 'DHS Needs a Unified Strategy to Counter Disinformation Campaigns,' but many of the observations in that report are consistent with our own. Our recommendations would produce a more strategic approach to disinformation."
