The U.S. intelligence community is preparing to confront a novel set of challenges related to the upcoming 2020 presidential elections amid proliferating disinformation threats – in part by boosting the amount of information it shares publicly, according to the number two intelligence official.

Director of National Intelligence Daniel R. Coats, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin K. McAleenan, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher A. Wray, U.S. Cyber Command Commander and National Security Agency Director Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Christopher C. Krebs, Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, and Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Global Security Kenneth P. Rapuano today issued the following statement after holding two classified briefings on election security, one for members of the United States House of Representatives and one for members of the United States Senate.

Five years into the U.S. intelligence community’s use of commercial cloud technologies, the IC plans to shift from a single-cloud to a multicloud model.
