Kathy Boockvar was recently interviewed by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette about challenges in the lead-up to the 2024 election, including the increase in threats against election officials since 2020. Boockvar discussed her work with the Committee for Safe and Secure Elections (CSSE) to support and strengthen protections for election officials, voters, and infrastructure. They discussed the resources, tabletop exercises, and other trainings CSSE and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency provide to election and law enforcement officials all around the country, and the need for ongoing resources to ensure the highest level of security for our elections. 

“Election officials who are understaffed, under-resourced, and who are some of the best human beings on the planet — who would do everything in their power to make sure that each of us can exercise our fundamental right to vote — they already had too big of a job compared to the resources that they had. But now there’s even more for them to do,” said Boockvar.
