The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has released its second graphic novel in the Resilience Series to educate the public on the dangers and risks associated with dis- and misinformation campaigns. Bug Bytes tells the fictional story of Ava Williams, a graduate student, who uses her wits and journalism skills to uncover a disinformation campaign set to damage critical communications infrastructure in the U.S. The plot shows how threat actors use social media and other communication platforms to spread inaccurate information for the sole purpose of planting doubt in the minds of targeted audiences to steer their opinion. CISA’s first graphic novel, Real Fake, was released in October 2020 and demonstrated how threat actors capitalize on political and social issues (especially around election cycles) to undermine public confidence by causing chaos, confusion, and division. CISA encourages everyone to consume information they receive or come across with care. It observes that practicing media literacy – including verifying sources, seeking alternative viewpoints, and finding trusted sources of information – is the most effective strategy in limiting the effect of disinformation.
