U.S. CyberDome, a cybersecurity provider to political parties, announced that it’s going to share cyberthreat information with political campaigns. The organization also founded the Political Campaign Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations (PC-ISAOs) through the U.S. Presidential Executive Order for Promoting Private Sector Cybersecurity Information Sharing.
The PC-ISAO was chartered to help organizations that are often in need of outside cybersecurity support. Political campaigns at all levels of U.S. federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government are invited to participate.
“The PC-ISAO is a neutral and non-partisan venue where technologists can share critical cybersecurity alerts and best practices,” said former Homeland Secretary Michael Chertoff, who serves on the U.S. CyberDome Board of Advisors. “The PC-ISAO helps members collaborate on critical cybersecurity challenges.”
U.S. CyberDome provides free cybersecurity services to political parties, elected representatives, and candidates across party lines, to ensure the integrity of the process and confidence in the results. It is comprised of cybersecurity experts who have trained and practiced at the world’s largest accredited computer forensics and incident response institute in the world, the Defense Cyber Crime Center, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
“U.S. CyberDome is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that protects political campaigns from cyber and dis-information threats. The organization furthers that effort today by announcing the formation of the first-ever information sharing and analysis organization for political campaigns,” said former Homeland Secretary Jeh Johnson, who serves as Chairman of U.S. CyberDome’s Board of Advisors.
