'Election Protection' Aims to Secure Candidates Running for Office

The kit is designed to prevent credential theft targeting people running for federal, state, and local elected offices.

The Cybersecurity Election Protection Toolkit, released today by Thycotic, aims to protect US election candidates and their employees during campaigns for federal, state, and local office.

Thycotic specializes in privileged access management, and its goal with this tool is to prevent credential theft. Its free kit addresses common means to target elections: getting unsuspecting people to download malware, cracking weak passwords, and stealing confidential information.

The kit also provides access to a free password strength checker and strong password checker, both available online.
