There is no need to be afraid because the information and recommendations I mention in the article apply to everyone who processes some information and uses technology. So basically everyone.
Information moves the world, and whether it is true or false, it can influence people's thinking and behavior. Disinformation is an instrument of hybrid war, which aims to influence social and political thinking in the country, thus destabilizing and "conquering" it without the use of military force (eg. the annexation of Crimea) or preparing the ground for a real invasion (now Ukraine). The information war thus began long before the invasion and is taking place not only in Ukraine, Russia, but also in our country (according to surveys, one in four Slovaks thinks that NATO / USA is to blame for the invasion of Ukraine). Access to the right information can also overthrow dictatorial regimes, and Russia will realize this, as it has begun to block social networks on its territory and may soon disconnect from the global Internet.
Technologies also play an important role, e.g. Russia's disconnection from the SWIFT system is one of the most significant sanctions and basically only means the disconnection of Russian banks from the global information system. On the other hand, Ukraine was the target of 10,000 cyber attacks a day last year. However, we cannot pretend that this does not apply to us.
