"Like any other Election Day, even any other Tuesday." CISA's election security updates.
“It looks like any other Election Day, even any other Tuesday,” a senior CISA official said yesterday, as the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) executed a long-prepared national effort to secure the vote. CISA has for some time expressed the view that public engagement through the media and directly online make an important contribution to cybersecurity. Through Election Day CISA held a series of six online media briefings, the first at 9:30 AM Eastern time, the last at 11:30 PM Eastern time, providing updates on election security. The good news, repeated throughout the day, is that no major cybersecurity threats surfaced during the voting. Our summary of CISA's briefings may be found here.
