The Council on State Governments

The Council on State Governments (CSG) is a nonpartisan, non-profit, region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy.


Through the project State Elections Cybersecurity Working Group, the Council on State Governments is seeking to expand the community of people who are grappling with cybersecurity risks and provide effective solutions at various levels of government.

With the help of our grant, the Council is seeking to establish a national working group on election cybersecurity issues to foster stronger working relationships between state technology officers and those who conduct elections. This will result in a detailed and member driven proposal to improve and advance election security policies and practices across the United States.
