I Am The Cavalry’s Beau Woods spoke to Fortune about a grassroots effort by cybersecurity experts to protect the public against cyber threats that exploit the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I would love to see this type of thing, a groundswell of effort, be able to jump onto things when there are lot of scams going on, like with the U.S. census or the upcoming election, or any emerging crisis in the world,” says Beau Woods, a cyber safety innovation fellow at the Atlantic Council, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank. The initiative could potentially establish “confidence-building measures,” diplomatic tools for trust-building between nations that’s sorely needed in cyberspace, he says.
