FBI Releases Article on Protected Voices Campaign

Recommended Posts

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has released an article on the Protected Voices initiative designed to mitigate the risk of cyber influence operations targeting U.S. elections. As part of the initiative, FBI offices are coordinating with political campaigns at the local, state, and federal levels across the country to make them aware of potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities. In partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, FBI has also released a series of short videos to help political campaigns defend their computer networks. The videos include tips and best practices on topics such as setting strong passwords and defending against social engineering.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users to review the FBI Article and the CISA Tip Best Practices for Securing Elections Systems for more information. CISA encourages election officials or campaign staff to report suspicious activity to their local FBI field office and to FBI CyWatch at cywatch@fbi.gov.

Not to a Negative Nancy, but the fact that the FBI would even have to spend their time to try to educate this sector simply proves it is already a very weak link in the chain and will probably continue to be for a long time.
