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.”
According to an election after-action report by the Election Integrity Partnership (EIP), a private consortium that played a major role in censoring social media content during the 2020 election, EI-ISAC was a key node in its reporting chain. “EI-ISAC served as a singular conduit for election officials to report false or misleading information to platforms,” according to the EIP report. “By serving as a one-stop reporting interface, the EI-ISAC allowed election officials to focus on detecting and countering election misinformation while CIS and its partners reported content to the proper social media platforms.”
