 VI. Tech Thursday

National Tech: A study by NBC News found that many county elections officials, especially those in swing states, have not received formal training on how to detect and fight cyberattacks. NBC reached out to election officials in every county in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Michigan and got responses from 60 percent of the counties. Officials from all 15 Arizona counties responded, but only five said their officials had received cybersecurity training. In Pennsylvania, where 42 of 67 counties responded, eight counties said their workers had training. In Michigan, 40 of the state's 83 counties responded, and only 12 indicated receiving formal training.
