The FBI reportedly hosted a first-in-the-nation training for candidates and campaigns to help them guard against foreign cyber attacks in the November election.
The closed-to-the-public seminar was held Monday in Denver, The Colorado Sun reported.
Calvin Shivers, the outgoing special agent in charge of the FBI's Denver division, told the news outlet there are no specific threats, but cybersecurity is vital.
"I thought it was important for the FBI be proactive in working with our elected officials and our candidates to provide you with education and knowledge," Shivers told about 150 politicians, campaign workers, and government officials, the news outlet reported.
The office of Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams co-sponsored the event.
"We want people to know the election process is secure, but we also want citizens to know that their vote is going to be counted accurately," Williams told the Sun.
