Secretary Gorbea Again Named to National Election Security Leadership Role

PROVIDENCE, RI – Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea has once again been elected by members of the Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EI-ISAC) to serve on the EI-ISAC Executive Committee. The announcement was made Thursday afternoon during the group's quarterly call.

EI-ISAC is funded by the Department of Homeland Security to protect the nation's voting infrastructure. The group is a collaborative effort that provides state, local, and territorial election offices with an election-focused cyber defense suite. EI-ISAC gathers information on cyber threats and shares information to identify, prevent, respond and recover from attacks on election systems.

"Building and maintaining a secure elections infrastructure is vital to the health of our democracy," said Secretary Gorbea. "Doing so requires an ongoing commitment on all levels of our government. I'm honored and excited to continue working with my fellow EI-ISAC members to assess and improve our country's election systems."

Last year, Secretary Gorbea was elected by EI-ISAC members to a one-year term on the Executive Committee. Her upcoming term will begin May 1, 2020, and will last two years.

As a member of the Executive Committee, Secretary Gorbea reviews and approves high level objectives, recommends new initiatives, provides leadership and direction to EI-ISAC's director, and guides the strategic direction of the organization.
