What is a Narrative Attack?

Understanding the growing attacks on perception.

Most organizations are unprepared for what is coming.

We engage with hundreds of senior executives from Global 2000 companies and National Security organizations, and this is what they all say:

“Narrative attacks, misinformation, and disinformation are a new threat vector that we have no visibility into.”
