As part of the effort to #Protect2020, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is working with national partners to build resilience to foreign interferences, particularly information activities (e.g., disinformation, misinformation).
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) views foreign interference as malign actions taken by foreign governments or actors designed to sow discord, manipulate public discourse, discredit the electoral system, bias the development of policy, or disrupt markets for the purpose of undermining the interests of the United States and its allies.
Responding to foreign interference requires a whole of society approach—CISA has made available the following foreign interference resources to #Protect2020:
- The War on Pineapple: Understanding Foreign Interference in 5 Steps
- Foreign Interference Taxonomy
