Voter beware: FBI

Agency,
08/10/2020   0 Comments

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security's cybersecurity agency have issued a series of advisories in recent weeks aimed at warning voters about problems that could surface in the election as well as steps Americans can take to counter the foreign interference threat.

 
The issues identified in the public service announcements run the gamut from the spread of online disinformation about the electoral process to cyberattacks targeting election infrastructure.
 
Taken together, the advisories make clear that American agencies are tracking a broad range of potential threats that they believe voters should know about not just for transparency's sake but also so that voters can be prepared.
 
The warnings come even though U.S. officials as recently as Tuesday expressed confidence in the integrity of the vote despite repeated efforts by President Donald Trump to denigrate it.
