In order to build a more resilient society, it is necessary to understand the informational aspect of real-life events and to maximize public awareness of the power of information. As it was suggested, power can be composed of a moral, conceptual and physical component.

Closure of a port, based on a misleading tweet from a hacked account suggesting a sea mine in the entrance, was used as an example of a possible financial and economic damage caused by manipulated information.
