The Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center has announced a new awareness campaign encouraging state and local officials to ramp up their cybersecurity efforts as midterm elections approach.

EI-ISAC’s new Cyber STRONG Campaign will aim to raise awareness among officials in state, local, tribal and territorial governments about steps they can take to protect elections, using the slogan “Strong elections are Cyber STRONG.”

“At the EI-ISAC, we recognize that cybersecurity is one of many priorities of election officials across the country,” EI-ISAC Senior Director Marci Andino said in a statement. “With that in mind, we’ve designed the Cyber STRONG Campaign to make it easy for hardworking election officials to implement specific action steps to continue the progress they’ve made in enhancing their cyber defenses as we head into the mid-term elections.”
