As the U.S. presidential campaign heats up, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a video series to help candidates shore up their cybersecurity to avoid the kind of online meddling that disrupted the 2016 election.

Dubbed Protected Voices, the initiative includes a series of videos featuring FBI special agents and computer scientists detailing ways foreign actors could seek to hack or influence political campaigns.
