CFI Task Force

CISA’s Countering Foreign Influence Task Force (CFITF) is charged with building national resilience to foreign influence activities. The CFITF does this by helping the American people and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stakeholders understand the scope and scale of influence activities targeting elections and critical infrastructure, and by enabling them to take actions to mitigate risks associated with foreign influence operations.
