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.
