Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance (BICG) invites members to a discussion Impact of Disinformation: Strategy Adjustment & Risk Governance for Business organized in Riga, on the 21st of February.
Mr Jānis Sārts, Director of the NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence, and Mr Uldis Biķis, Board member of the BICG and Chairman of the Supervisory Board at Latvijas Finieris, are the keynote speakers of the event.
“Information warfare is an everyday reality, which can have and has a significant impact on economies and businesses. In the Baltic region, in Europe and in the entire world. In their daily rush, people absorb messages from different sources and pass it on as the truth. That is why it is so important for everyone to distance themselves from emotions and confront disinformation, by using objectivity, factual arguments and by creating an outstanding discussion making culture. This event in Riga will be a great opportunity to examine this crucial issue,” says Mr Biķis.
Ms Inna Šteinbuka, Head of the European Commission Representation in Latvia; Mr Andris Lauciņš, Partner at Ernst & Young Latvia; and Ms Laura Minsekere, Co-founder and CEO of Mediju Tilts/Burson-Marsteller, will join us for the panel discussion.
Please note that both the keynote speeches and the panel discussion will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
The language of the event is Latvian, with English translation provided on request.
The discussion is organized together with the NATO Strategic Communications Center of Excellence, European Commission Representation in Latvia, American Chamber of Commerce and Latvijas Finieris.
It is open for the members of the BICG and American Chamber of Commerce, upon invitation and confirmed registration.
