Over the last year, InfraGardNCR has supported the FBI Washington Field Office to launch the Protected Voices initiative, www.fbi.gov/protectedvoices.  

 

Protected Voices is an FBI-led initiative to mitigate the risk of cyber influence operations targeting U.S. elections. Part of that initiative is outward-facing and includes efforts by the FBI to raise awareness among political campaigns about the best ways to fend off possible attempts—by criminals, foreign agents, or others—to infiltrate their information technology infrastructure.

One key to addressing this threat is for a campaign to enhance its own cyber hygiene, the technological equivalent of locking your doors and windows. To this end, the FBI—in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence—has released a number of short videos (www.fbi.gov/protectedvoices) on the most urgent cybersecurity issues that may leave a campaign’s computer networks vulnerable to attacks. The videos include tips and best practices on how best to protect your organization, based on industry research and our own vast experience investigating cyber crimes.

But even beyond political campaigns, the cybersecurity information contained in these videos—which ranges from protecting passwords to social engineering threats to what to do if you think you’ve been hacked—will be helpful to anyone who uses a computer.
