(NASS) SUMMARY - The National Association of Secretaries of State, which represents chief state election officials, announces the formation of a NASS Election Cybersecurity Task Force and the adoption of a bipartisan resolution opposing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's January 2016 classification of election infrastructure as "critical infrastructure."


"We are calling on the new administration to rescind the critical infrastructure label for elections and return to the process that has been in place for more than 200 years to provide national security support for our highly-decentralized, low-connectivity electoral system. In the meantime, states will be working together to step up their preparedness against future cyber threats."
