Cybersecurity Solutions to Assess, Improve, and Manage the Integrity and Security of the Election Process
Election Security Threats
In the last few years, cybercriminals have delivered a wave of attacks that were not just highly coordinated but far more advanced than ever. Securing elections against cyberattacks is imperative for governments around the world. Threats include misinformation and disinformation, insider threats, attacks directly on counties, malware, reconnaissance activity, probing, and more.
Need for a Strong Security Culture
Without significant focus and effort on building a strong culture of security, any person or system can become an attacker’s way into the infrastructure and negatively affect elections.
Need for Constant Improvement
Election officials must constantly evolve their culture, processes, and tools to protect elections from cyberattacks.
Need for a Customized Approach
A single product or cookie-cutter effort is not enough—an effective election security transformation must be pervasive across the entire election process.
