The Counter Disinformation Programme at the Strategic Communications Research Institute aims to inform and educate business leaders and policy makers on the complexity of assessing the risk from operations within the information environment, advises how best to mitigate the threat and effectively defend against it.
Central to this programme is the DMMI Matrix Cube – a tool for assessing risk in the context of information confrontation. By delineating and ordinating the concepts of disinformation, misinformation, malinformation, and information, its purpose is to gauge a communication’s intention to cause harm, and its likelihood of success; these, together, define the severity of weaponised information, such as those employed within sophisticated information operations. The chance or probability of the (information) risk is determined by the intention to harm, the apparent veracity of the information, and the probability of its occurrence
