The role of CISA in securing the 2020 election infrastructure
Introduction
President Trump signed the CISA Act into law in 2018, effectively creating the
Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). According to the agency’s website,
CISA is “responsible for protecting the Nation’s critical infrastructure from physical and cyber
threats.‚ÄĚ The recent years have seen an increase in cybersecurity threats, with the nation
reporting hundreds of billions of dollars as the cost to the economy. In establishing CISA,
president Trump intended for it to help the country in improving cybersecurity across the various
levels of government. The mandate of the agency is to coordinate cybersecurity initiatives
between the federal and state governments, thereby protecting the country's cyber infrastructure
against the nation-state and private intruders and hackers.
One of the areas of responsibility for CISA is to ensure election infrastructure security. Through
partnerships with local, state, and federal governments, and with election officials, partners, and
vendors, CISA is determined to provide physical security and cybersecurity for protecting the
nation's election IT infrastructure. This year, the agency started a campaign dubbed
#Protect2020, which aims at securing the upcoming general elections. Election infrastructure is
one of the critical infrastructures, according to the Department of Homeland Security's
guidelines. While CISA has many responsibilities, the agency gives a lot of attention to the 2020
elections. Much of its resources will go into identifying and planning for potential vulnerabilities
and threats, engaging political players as a way of preparing for the poll, and monitoring foreign
interference.
