Don't let a hack be what makes your campaign front page news.
I want everyone to take this training, because my emails, other data shared, etc. is only as safe as everyone who has it.
Politicians and political campaigns are increasingly victims of cyberattacks. Russia, Iran, China, and North Korea generated tens of thousands of attacks on American lawmakers in the 2020 cycle.
Campaigns often form quickly, operate on a tight budget, incorporate many moving parts, and have varied levels of technical expertise. Defensive and preparatory actions need to be tailored to specific contexts, requiring candidates and advisors to have knowledge of cyber threats and the unique environment in which campaigns operate.
While cybersecurity threats have no silver bullet solutions, a range of technical and behavioral changes can dramatically reduce the likelihood of the success of both domestic and foreign attacks. The right training, in the right context, can make campaigns much more secure.
It was a helpful follow up to other trainings and a more interactive security training than I have had in the past. I found this more helpful and felt the team would be there in the future should we need more help.

[I liked learning] just how real Phishing emails can look! I think I just found a phishing email today on my personal email and reported it to my campaign to alert for all other staffers.
