NASS Election Cybersecurity Task Force Members

Established in February 2017, the NASS Election Cybersecurity Task Force is a bipartisan body created by the nation's chief state election officials to advance collaboration on the unique priorities and challenges that exist regarding cybersecurity and elections. In addition to helping states share information and combat threats, the body is tasked with providing guidance on NASS efforts and fostering effective partnerships with public/private stakeholders, including DHS and other federal government entities.
