(ATLANTA) – Every Georgia county has joined a national cybersecurity-protection organization, the first state with more than 100 counties to do so, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced Tuesday.

At Raffensperger’s urging, the counties joined the Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing Analysis Center, or EI-ISAC, which is a part of the Center for Internet Security, considered the go-to resource for cyber threat prevention, protection, response, and recovery for federal, state and local government.

The Center for Internet Security has been a leader in providing cybersecurity best practices for more than a decade.

“Election security is the first goal for me and for our local partners, the counties that actually run elections in Georgia. So, I’m proud that every county has demonstrated that commitment by following my recommendation to join EI-ISAC,” Raffensperger said. “Their membership means they will get up-to-date information on threats, training and resources for mitigating any attack. And that’s good news for Georgia’s voters.”
