October 13, 2020


Bob Kolasky, Director of the National Risk Management Center (NRMC) at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), today pronounced state and local election authorities “well positioned” to conduct secure elections next month.

Speaking at the CISQ Cyber Resilience Summit, Kolasky explained the years’ worth of work that CISA has undertaken with state and local parties to help ensure election security. “We set up a pretty damn good information system” to support state and local governments, he said. “It’s getting close to game day, and we are ready to go.”
