Campaign Cybersecurity Resources
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) provide valuable resources to help mitigate the risk of cyber influence in elections. Every campaign committee should review the DHS Campaign Checklist (PDF) and the FBI’s Protected Voices video series to learn valuable tools for how to reduce risk and how to respond to incidents.
State and local campaign staff should report suspicious activity to their local FBI field office (Cincinnati: 513.421.4310 or Cleveland: 216.522.1400) and the Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center at 888.282.0870 or [email protected]
For additional resources, the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs has published a Campaign Playbook (PDF), as well as campaign handouts for campaign staff (PDF) and family members of the candidate (PDF).
