DLT Blog. Text reads: How CrowdStrike is using Technology to protect data

Recently Adam Meyers, SVP of Intelligence at CrowdStrike, and a DLT partner, hosted a webinar called "Protecting Our Nation's Election Infrastructure in 2020". In this webinar, Adam provides insight into the motivations behind attacks launched by threat actors who are targeting government agencies and private companies.

DLT Blog. Text reads: Ransomeware Attacks

Government officials, particularly at the local level, not only have to contend with a pandemic but also an increase in digital threats such as ransomware attacks. These attacks are being used to create chaos in political campaigns and steal voting data before election day. Specifically, ransomware attacks can create confusion on election day and cause irreversible damage, such as deleting voter registration databases, voting tabulation, or stealing sensitive records containing personal information. The question that needs to be asked is, how can local and state government authorities combat the threat of these ransomware attacks?

 

Text Reads: What's Next for Election Security?

Election security is a big topic, but it resembles a many-legged centipede. Federal contractors face the reality that elections are the purview of state, county and municipal officials. The technical and managerial abilities of these entities vary from what you might expect in a tiny hamlet to what you might encounter in a million-person suburban county. Not to push the analogy, but the mail-in Census option resembles the mail-in balloting process that’s expanded so much in recent years. Both electronic and mail balloting are likely to balloon as the coronavirus threat affects nearly every governmental process.

 

Text Reads: Cybersecurity for Election Systems

Cybersecurity is a fundamental pillar of election security. The elections community–and their partners in government, NGOs, and the private sector–must remain vigilant in the face of potential threats. Elections infrastructure and systems, enterprises that administer elections, campaigns, and the channels through which elections information and results are communicated, can all be targeted. Learn how CrowdStrike can help.

 

Text Reads: Election Security: Is the USPS Really Ready for Election Day?

Federal and State officials, including the FBI, have explained that it would be difficult for any bad actor to coordinate any fraud scheme involving mail ballots. This is due to the numerous safeguards in place designed to protect U.S. elections. Furthermore, experts point out that the concern is not technology, but if the board election will have the massive workforce needed to verify each returned ballot. So many election officials are now relying on signature-verification software that some security specialists fear hackers could exploit this technology.
