DHS-funded nonprofit censoring election info also provides cybersecurity to election offices

Mar 7, 2023 | Political News

The Center for Internet Security (CIS), which has participated in censorship of purported election “misinformation,” has provided ambiguous “cybersecurity services” free of charge to various elections offices in counties across the U.S. in collaboration with other left-wing nonprofits, the Department of Homeland Security, and the cybersecurity company CrowdStrike.

CIS participated in censorship during both the 2020 and 2022 elections through its Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing & Analysis Center (EI-ISAC). EI-ISAC “works closely with election officials and security and technology personnel to provide the highest standards of election security, including incident response and remediation through our team of cyber experts,” the CIS website reads.

“Our 24x7x365 Security Operations Center (SOC) monitors, analyzes, and responds to cyber incidents targeting election offices and government entities,” the explanation continues. “We develop and share best practices for securing election infrastructure, incorporating security into election technology procurements, and helping manage election supply chain risks.”
