Standards

This section is for cybersecurity geeks, and you do not need to read it to implement the toolkit.
The GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit for Elections is based on the first 10 of the CIS Controls, meaning that the toolkit is based on a set of widely recognized steps that organizations should take to improve their security.  The information below shows how the tools included in the GCA Cybersecurity Toolkit relate to and implement these CIS Controls.
In addition, we have mapped the tools to national recommendations in the United Kingdom and Australia.  This may help you understand what else you should consider doing to align with the recommendations of your government.
