What is Phishing? Why Should Candidates Care? How Can Area 1 Help Candidates?
What is Phishing?
  • For the upcoming 2020 U.S. election cycle, Area 1 has already identified cyber actors targeting election-sensitive organizations via phishing attacks.
  • Phishing attacks – the cause of 95% of cyber breaches – are any attempts to mislead email users to take an action that causes damage.
  • Email users are constantly lured into phishing baits. This leads to loss of user credentials, ransom of computer files, and theft of money, sensitive data and documents.

 

 

 

Why Should Candidates Care?
  • Just as threat actors target businesses, threat actors also target the electoral process and government communications.
  • Cyber attacks against candidates tend to intensify around milestones such as FEC filing deadlines, debates and primaries. The risk also increases as candidates gain momentum, expand staff and volunteers, and get closer to Election Day.
  • To help free U.S. elections from phishing attacks, Area 1 now provides FEC-permitted, low-cost anti-phishing services to federal candidates of any party.
