The flood of disinformation after the Nord Stream pipeline attacks appears to be a classic example of Russian active measures. New Mexico is poised to take advantage of federal cyber grants. And NIST makes progress on forming responsible AI guidelines. This is CyberScoop for Oct. 3.

The Nord Stream wave of disinformation

Within hours of last week's Nord Stream pipeline explosion, Russian officials, Twitter users and Tucker Carlson began circulating disinformation suggesting that the Biden administration was responsible for the apparent act of sabotage. In fact, some viral tweets included old footage of U.S. military jets flying over Germany to support Russia’s claims that the U.S. was the culprit. The episode fits perfectly into the Russian playbook for weaponizing information, experts say, and is also a textbook example for how quickly disinformation can be ginned up in the wake of major geopolitical events. Suzanne Smalley has the story.

New Mexico plans for cyber spending

New Mexico this week took one of the first major steps toward applying for a new federal cybersecurity grant program when Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued an executive order creating a cybersecurity planning committee. The committee, which will include at least 13 members representing state, local and tribal governments, and New Mexico’s business community, will be responsible for developing a broader cybersecurity strategy for the state and advising the governor on information security policy.

NIST moves ahead with responsible AI planning

The National Institute of Standards and Technology is currently finalizing plans to establish an online center to complement its Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework, according to an agency spokesperson. It will be called the Trustworthy and Responsible AI Resource Center, and will provide support documents and guidance about trustworthy AI‘s characteristics and use cases. The repository is also intended to contain contributions from other agencies and industry, which will be added at a later date. Dave Nyczepir writes in FedScoop.
