CISA Releases the Election Risk Profile Tool

Press Release:

    Today, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released the Election Risk Profile Tool, a user-friendly assessment tool to equip election officials and federal agencies in prioritizing and managing cybersecurity risks to the Election Infrastructure Subsector.

    The new tool aids state and local election officials in understanding the range of risks they face and how to prioritize mitigation efforts. It also addresses areas of greatest risk, ensures technical cybersecurity assessments and services are meeting critical needs, and provides a sound analytic foundation for managing election security risk with key partners at the federal, state and local level.

    The Election Risk Profile Tool:

  • Is a user-friendly assessment tool for state and local election officials to develop a high-level risk profile across a jurisdiction's specific infrastructure components;
  • Provides election officials a method to gain insights into their cybersecurity risk and prioritize mitigations;
  • Accepts inputs of a jurisdiction's specific election infrastructure configuration; and
  • Outputs a tailored risk profile for jurisdictions, which identifies specific areas of highest risk and recommends associated mitigation measures that the jurisdiction could implement to address the risk areas.

    The Election Risk Profile Tool is intended to guide CISA's prioritization of election security efforts, as well as provide election officials a method to understand the range of risks they face and how to prioritize mitigation efforts. It is designed to enhance the security and resilience of the Nation's elections in 2020 and beyond.

    The Election Risk Profile Tool is available on the EAC website. The tool can also be found at www.cisa.gov/protect2020.
