State Election Officials to Get Security Clearances for Cyberthreat Data

“The Department of Homeland Security is clearing the way for state election officials to apply for security clearances so they can review classified information about cyberthreats to their election systems, federal and state authorities said in interviews this week.

The move comes after many state officials criticized the federal agency for, in their view, failing to provide certain information about suspected attempts to hack voter-registration systems during the 2016 presidential election. DHS formally designated election systems ‘critical infrastructure’ in January, which federal officials said would help the agency prioritize election-security efforts.”
