All good things must come to an end: with the start of the new year, the GEC’s Disinfo Cloud platform and the Disinfo Cloud Digest have been retired as GEC-sponsored efforts. However, the GEC’s work to elevate technology solutions to disinformation challenges continue with new projects designed to adapt to the current environment. Stay tuned for more information on the next iteration of this program!

Disinfo Cloud is an unclassified platform used by the U.S. government, foreign partners, and technology providers to identify and learn about technologies to counter adversarial propaganda and disinformation. Disinfo Cloud is also a gateway to the TE’s Testbed – established to rapidly identify, assess, test, and implement these technologies. TE invites all interested U.S. government stakeholders and foreign partners to sign up for an account on the Disinfo Cloud website. TE welcomes all feedback and is particularly interested in user requirements against which the technologies can be tested.
A Look Inside
The dashboard shows the number of technologies currently on the testbed, the number of technologies at each stage of assessment, and the types of technologies they represent. Disinfo Cloud offers a continuously updated feed of the latest research, news and related events published by third parties.

Why Disinfo Cloud?
Problem: The TE knows there are a wide range of propaganda and disinformation challenges faced by the U.S. government and foreign partners. The team seeks guidance and information from its members in order to identify challenges, needs, and test proposals.
Tool: Disinfo Cloud permits stakeholders to search for assessed tools or technologies. The TE can help identify appropriate counter propaganda and disinformation tools and technologies to suit different groups’ needs.
Solution: Write to inform TE or Disinfo Cloud what your office needs to counter propaganda and disinformation. Ask us for assistance in identifying a technological solution or draft a test proposal for a tool. Can’t find a tool that fits your needs? Let Disinfo Cloud know by using the blue and green feedback buttons. The team is open to insights and is here to help implement ideas to move the counter propaganda and disinformation mission forward.
