Spycloud and Cyberdefenses Partners to Defend Against Foreign Election Interference
SpyCloud, known for its unique breach data collection and curation platform that powers leading account takeover prevention and fraud investigation solutions, today announced its partnership with CyberDefenses, an award-winning Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) and expert in election security, to protect the integrity of current and future elections. Across the United States, elections are operated by Secretary of State offices with more than 3,000 county governments forming the frontline of defense against election cyberattacks. County election departments are frequently attractive targets for attackers with a wide range of motivations and agendas. As most areas of government shift to digital platforms, threat actors are increasingly choosing cyberattacks as their method to launch election interference, ransomware, account takeover, and other attacks. Even a small but successful attack could cause people to lose faith in election results, resulting in disastrous consequences for our nation.
