Election Systems as Critical Infrastructure: Understanding Help America Vote Act Funding
In today's edition of Tenable's State and Local Government Video Blog Series, we discuss how to utilize grant funding to address the top cybersecurity concerns of state CISOs.
In 2017, the profile of elections security was substantially raised when the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) added Election Infrastructure as a cyber-resiliency Critical Infrastructure Subsector under the Presidential Policy Directive/PPD 21 (2013). The addition allowed states to integrate elections security into their existing critical infrastructure resiliency plans and to apply resources accordingly. In fact, DHS was empowered to engage in cross-sector collaboration and resource sharing as a best practice.
In today’s video blog, Steve Smith, SLG Business Development Executive for Tenable, and Kent Dyer, Tenable SLG Sales Engineer and former state agency CISO, discuss how to protect critical infrastructure containing sensitive data, and how to leverage the Help Americans Vote Act (HAVA) funding to protect state and local government computing environments.
