PA Election Cyber Exercise Conducted

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania’s new Inter-Agency Election Preparedness and Security Workgroup along with county election personnel from across the state participated in a first-of-its-kind national and local election cyber exercise organized in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The exercise was designed to assist election, information technology, and security personnel in training for cyber incident response by simulating scenarios that could impact voting operations. Acting Secretary of State Robert Torres said Pennsylvania has numerous protections and layered defenses already in place to secure the integrity of elections. Over the next few months, the workgroup will collaborate on increasing security resources, training, support, information-sharing, and preparation at all levels of election administration. Additionally, the workgroup will hold several community forums around the state on election security.
