Cybersecurity Spotlight


EI-ISAC Cybersecurity Spotlight – Ransomware

Election officials should work with their technical staff to ensure the following key policies are in place to protect their networks against ransomware:

  • Keep your systems and defensive software patched;
  • Maintain up-to-date data backups which are stored offline and regularly tested to ensure they are complete and it is possible to reinstall from the backups;
  • Implement email filtering to identify suspicious emails;
  • Conduct regular end user awareness training on how to identify and respond to suspicious emails and ransomware infections.
