Have you been hacked?    If you suspect or know organization, consultant, vendor, or staff member has been hacked, call (323) 813-5780 immediately. We recommend against using email accounts if you suspect your network may have been compromised as this may unnecessarily alert the attackers.

What we do

Every day, millions of dollars are jeopardized by organizations that have failed to implement the most basic security protocols—at every level. In many cases teams are spread out and often use their own devices with literally no common security policies.

The dangers are real and incidents occur at EVERY level. And they’re increasing.

Campaign Defense, Inc. provides practical instructions, training, and guidance to lower risk from cyber attacks, malware, and infiltration—while helping to satisfy state requirements of “reasonable precautions”
CDI’s team are experienced operatives that know the specific demands consultants, campaigns, advocacy orgs, associations, and public affairs firms face. And how they often operate within ad-hoc environment that makes them particularly vulnerable.

In cases where an incident has already occurred, we can help quarterback the response: coordinating the technical and legal experts, and working with your team to understand the next steps, both operationally, politically, and from a public relations standpoint.

Under our process:

  • Exposure analysis of your organization
  • Know the threat and what your organization is legally required to do
