ABSTRACT

Pulse Report: Analyzing the Threat of Ransomware Attacks Against US Elections   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "The threat of a ransomware attack against elections in the United States has been a growing concern within the government and the private sector. We already know that threat actors managed to infiltrate the networks of election offices in multiple states, and according to a Senate Intelligence Report, those same adversaries were targeting all 50 states. In addition, it was reported earlier this year that the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Office was hit with a ransomware attack in September of 2016, which was not reported to the FBI or Homeland Security. [...] The goal of this report is to take a realistic look at the different ransomware threats to the U.S. elections and offer suggestions to protect against those threats."
