Overall Recommendations

Cybersafety

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.

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.

Crisis Communication

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.
