Jeff Brody

A group of cybersecurity experts formed a nonprofit organization to protect U.S. presidential campaigns from foreign interference. U.S. CyberDome will offer cybersecurity services to campaigns for the 2020 presidential elections, the organization said Tuesday.

Jeh Johnson, former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, chairs CyberDome’s board of advisers. Advisers include James Clapper, former director of national intelligence and a two-time Wash100 Award winner; Michael Morell, former CIA director; Michael Chertoff, former DHS secretary; and Francis Taylor, former undersecretary for intelligence and analysis at DHS.

“All candidates should have the freedom to speak their minds, without fear of retaliation or meddling by a foreign adversary,” said Joseph Drissel, founder of U.S. CyberDome. “We are providing the best protection from the best cyber minds in the country so they can do just that.”
