Protecting a Democracy from Inauthentic Influence Campaigns and Adversarial Threat Actors

Before a critical election, a strong democracy faced serious threats from inauthentic accounts seeking to exploit societal tensions, endangering national stability.


Identifying and dissecting complex influence campaigns

Vinesight was tasked with uncovering and analyzing complex influence campaigns. These efforts, in various languages and on multiple platforms, used both genuine and inauthentic (bot-like) accounts to bypass moderation and targeted lesser-watched "fringe" sites. The main aim was to undermine social stability and interfere with elections.

VineSight's advanced platform swiftly detected and analyzed toxic online attacks, uncovering activities by threat networks on various platforms. Its comprehensive approach revealed hidden campaigns targeting vulnerable groups. VineSight employed metrics dashboards to assess campaign impacts and government responses, enabling effective strategies with civil society and fact-checkers.
