No Election-Related Cyber Attacks Thus Far

With all of the election hype going on today as Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump face off in the presidential race with so many voters going to the polls, it is no wonder why officials are particularly guarding against incidents that could occur when states start reporting vote totals this evening.  No states have reported any election-related cyber security incidents so far on this Tuesday morning.

Barbara Ware, communications director at the Center for Internet Security, which runs an information sharing and analysis partnership with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), said….

“we’re not hearing anything of a cyber security nature so far.”

The partnership is called the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center, and it is was funded in part by DHS. If a state election website is hit by a cyber attack, they can report it to this group and then the information is shared broadly with other states.wa-reasons

If you are thinking about starting a website and not sure how certain features, such as security, are going to be best at which company you should look into Wealthy Affiliate, because WA promises to have “the most secure hosting anywhere”.  Plus you will get 24 hours, 7 days a week website monitoring and very fast technical support when needed.

I have been with WA for about a year and a half and I have multiple websites hosted with them and have not run into any problems.  For comparisons on how Wealthy Affiliate stacks up against other website hosting companies, check out my web hosting reviews.

  1. Hi Steph,

    Great idea by Wealthy Affiliate to offer secure hosting. I am well aware of cyber attacks and hacking in today’s environment and I regularly review VPN products to protect against browsing. But it’s always a worry if you have a web site and need secure encryption on your domain. I’m assuming it’s encrypted anyway. This just proves how serious Wealthy Affiliate are about protecting their clients. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Craig:

      The VPN services market has exploded over the past three years. Many providers are capitalizing on the general population’s growing concerns about surveillance and cybercrime, which means it’s getting hard to tell when a company is actually providing a secure service and when it’s throwing out a lot of fancy words while selling snake oil. It is very important to keep several things in mind when reviewing which VPN service is right for you: reputation, performance, type of encryption used, transparency, ease of use, support, and extra features. Don’t just focus on price, though that is an important factor. That is why I believe Wealthy Affiliate is the best option for today’s needs.


  2. This election has been so overwhelming, I really feel like its been like a movie or something, its all just so surreal.
    I think that the best thing Americans can do in this type of situation is focus on themselves, building themselves, improving themselves, because the only person who can improve your life is you, not a president. Thanks for this article Steph and have a splendid day!

    1. Hi Jacob:

      You are so right. We should definitely just worry about ourselves and not worry about who is serving as president. The only one who can improve our lives is ourselves. That is very well said. Thank you Jacob!
