CISA Launches #Protect2024 Resources Webpage for State and Local Election Officials
WASHINGTON - As part of its unwavering commitment to safeguarding the security and integrity of the nation’s elections infrastructure, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) launched its new #Protect2024 webpage today. Election security remains a paramount concern for CISA, the lead federal agency entrusted with securing the nation’s elections infrastructure. The agency continues to proudly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with state and local election officials who are on the frontlines of defending our electoral process, and is committed to providing them with the resources, capabilities, and actionable information to help them ensure the security and integrity of the elections process.
As part of the #Protect2024 initiative, CISA developed a webpage to serve as a central point for consolidated critical resources, training lists and security service offerings to support the over 8,000 election jurisdictions for the 2024 election cycle. These efforts build upon prior years of working with elections officials to mitigate the cyber, physical, and operational risks to election infrastructure.
“The #PROTECT2024 website provides a consolidated set of free resources for state and local election officials, those on the front lines of securing the democratic process,” said CISA Director Jen Easterly. “This year, we are placing particular focus on support to local election offices in order to help them strengthen their security posture.”
CISA encourages stakeholders, government officials, and the public to explore the #Protect2024 website, joining the collective effort to ensure a secure and resilient 2024 election cycle.
