Cybersecurity and Cyber Safety
Campaigns and election officials need to know the best ways to keep their cyber infrastructure safe. We will bring best practices to the forefront of people in campaigns. From two-way authentication across all devices, to password protection hygiene, we are a resource to help educate people in campaigns at the most fundamental level when it comes to Cybersecurity and Cyber Safety.

Disinformation and Misinformation
Validating information in the age of information is becoming increasingly difficult. We now consume news over a 24 hour cycle. Hackers and bad actors are trying to take advantage of unfiltered, unfettered content, so it’s important to know what’s real, and…what’s not. We will address misinformation from deep fake to false advertising and news to help keep you on the lookout.

When a hack hits your campaign, it is usually too late. Our module is designed to help mitigate risk of a cyber attack and prepare accordingly with the right protocols. And if you are hacked, we will address how to respond in the most immediate and effective way.
When a crisis (e.g. cyberattacks) hits your campaign, political organization or election office, you need to respond immediately. Our module is designed to help understand a potential crisis and how to prepare to respond in the most immediate and effective way.
