Anonymous has announced it will provide services to the NSA whistleblower service provider, Cybersecurity Service Provider (CSP), to protect its members against cyberattacks and protect its employees against cyber-attacks.
Anonymous said in a statement that it will “work with CSP to ensure its employees’ safety.”
The group, which calls itself Anonymous, says in the statement that CSP is “the only publicly available whistleblower service that will provide protection from cyber-threats and cyber-infiltration, both online and offline.”
Anonymous said that its members will “encourage all of our members to use the Cybersecurity Protection Service, and not to be deterred from doing so by any governmental agencies.”CSP said in its statement that the services will be offered “by an independent third-party company,” according to The New York Times.
“We do not have any affiliation with any government agency, or any other entity,” CSP said.
“The information provided to CSP by the U.S. Government does not reflect any Government, nor does it reflect any CSP’s mission or activities.”
Cybersecurity Service Providers (CSEs) have become a hot topic in the U, particularly with the election of President Donald Trump.
They have been targeted by hackers who have taken down the websites of both the Republican and Democratic parties, as well as political candidates.
Cybersecurity providers say the attacks are part of a larger trend by hackers and other groups to disrupt businesses and governments around the world.CSE officials have been critical of the cyberattack on the Democratic National Committee, which was carried out by a Russian-based group known as APT28.
A group of hackers known as Guccifer 2.0 also hacked into the DNC’s emails and published them on the dark web.CSP has been criticized by some whistleblowers who have expressed concern about the lack of protections CSEs provide their employees, including access to sensitive data and access to documents stored on its servers.
CSE officials say they are committed to protecting employees’ privacy, but that they have limited resources and are limited to a small number of employees.
Cse’s board of directors is made up of former members of the U to Congress.
