Facebook Adds Extra Security Tools for US Campaign-Affiliated Users

Facebook's Head of Cybersecurity Policy, Nathaniel Gleicher, announced the addition of extra cybersecurity measures designed to protect both candidates and staff during US political campaigns.

The new security tools are designed to allow campaign staff to be one step ahead of threat actors who might want to use Facebook as a platform for delivering misinformation and malicious content.

Moreover, these new cybersecurity-focused tools introduced by this pilot program come to complement the ones already put in place by Facebook, and will help secure elected officials and candidates in future elections around the world and the US.

The pilot program is also meant to help Facebook recognize campaign-affiliated users faster by allowing federal or statewide office candidates and their representatives to enable additional security defenses for official campaign pages.
