Exposure

Information about Rowett, including a scan of the photo page of his passport, was published in the Integrity Initiative leak. One document included his stated aims:

Personally, I want to

  • Expand personal skillset
  • Focus on expanding my knowledge of the dynamics of online information warfare
  • Link knowledge of information warfare to other aspects of Hybrid warfare and the strategic conflict.
  • Begin working on drawing other experts into discussions of how subversive attacks using morally and politically unacceptable (from a western democratic perspective) can be best countered by a democratic institution, without tainting itself
  • Take a guiding role in YACUK and ACUK, the YATA and ATA chapters for the UK. I believe both these institutions can be developed into aspects that the II can use in several ways.

Another his skills:[2]

Specialist in Russian use of Social Media as a mechanism for influence and disinformation;

specialist in Social Media exploitation and counter-strategy; environmental expert, paying special attention to Russian information exploitation of the environmental lobby; working with the Institute’s

youth programme for informational discernment education.
