Original release date: August 10, 2022
CISA—through the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC)—has released a toolkit of free cybersecurity resources for the election community. The toolkit aims to help state and local government officials, election officials, and vendors enhance the cybersecurity and cyber resilience of U.S. election infrastructure. The toolkit resources, which come from CISA, JCDC members, and others across the cybersecurity community, focus on assessing risk and protecting election infrastructure assets commonly targeted by phishing, ransomware, and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.
CISA strongly encourages election community stakeholders to use the Cybersecurity Toolkit to Protect Elections to strengthen the cybersecurity and cyber resilience of U.S. election infrastructure.
