ABCDE Framework

The ABCDE framework breaks down the disinformation problem into smaller operative factors that can be framed as questions. It can be used to give structure to reports of any length and outline available data in a clear and coherent manner. The ABCDE approach sets a standard that can be tailored to the needs of individual institutions or teams. For more information about the framework, click here.

Effect - What is the overall impact of the case? Whom does it affect?
