Infocyte and CyberDefenses evaluate the end-to-end election process and provide cyber risk insights
Infocyte is partnering with CyberDefenses to deliver Election Security Assessments throughout the United States. CyberDefenses’ Election Security Assessment evaluates the end-to-end election process and provides cyber risk insights to arm election teams with stronger defenses against election cyberattacks and tampering.
The process also includes a thorough review of security practices and delivers guidance on best practices for strengthening election security initiatives.
“Infocyte is thrilled to partner with CyberDefenses to help protect the security and integrity of our elections and voting systems,” said Curtis Hutcheson, CEO of Infocyte. “No environment is impenetrable and must conduct regular independent assessments to detect and remove advanced threats and vulnerabilities.”
CyberDefenses election security experts leveraged Infocyte to create the compromise and threat detection portion of the Election Security Assessment. The assessment employs multiple standards, including the NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF).
The methodology leverages the best practices and expertise gleaned from decades of experience and from helping clients handle and recover from cyberattacks.
Infocyte and CyberDefenses also have capabilities, if needed, to go beyond the initial threat and vulnerability assessment to support incident response, with investigation, triage and recovery of compromised systems.
CyberDefenses provides the assessment through onsite and virtual consulting performed by its Cyber Navigator teams. According to Armando Ordonez, CyberDefenses CEO, “Infocyte gives us a powerful set of capabilities for detecting cyber threats targeting elections and other security risks at a granular level. It’s been a great partnership that combines the best of what our respective companies have to offer election teams and the state and local government agencies that support them.”
The Election Security Assessment is completed in a matter of weeks without additional election department resources, hardware or expensive consulting agreements.
