The National Security Agency (NSA) deployed its ‘Election Security Group' (NSG) to ‘protect' the midterm elections.
The NSA will work to identify and fight foreign cyberhackers "by exposing them publicly, making their financial costs skyrocket, and by deploying other techniques," according to the Washington Times.
"Thousands of people are going to work every day to defend the elections from foreign threats, from generating insights to sharing information to imposing costs by degrading and disrupting foreign adversary activity," Katrina Cheesman, Election Security Group spokesperson, told The Washington Times.
The Washington Times reported:
The National Security Agency and Cyber Command have activated their Election Security Group tasked with disrupting foreign cyberattackers aiming to hack or interfere with the upcoming midterm elections, assembling a team to combat threats coming from China, Iran and Russia.
The group uses its foreign signals and intelligence collection capabilities to identify attackers and their intent and then fights against attackers by exposing them publicly, making their financial costs skyrocket, and by deploying other techniques.
The team includes information specialists, planners, and operations specialists that are squarely focused on foreign threats, while leaving related domestic work to the FBI and Department of Homeland Security.
When the Election Security Group spots a cyberattack it will go on offense against the attacker, while its information provided to the domestic agencies can be used to diminish an attacker's efforts in the U.S.
NSA and Cyber Command pass information about foreign actors to the FBI and Homeland Security who work with state and local governments as well as tech and social media companies.
The biggest threat to US elections is the Democrat party's massive voter fraud operation.
In a moment of honesty likely spurred by his dementia, Joe Biden admitted the Democrat party has the ‘most extensive' voter fraud organization in US history.
"We have put together, and you guys did it for President Obama's administration before this, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics," Biden said during a virtual Get Out the Vote event in 2020.
