Smith Elected to EI-ISAC Executive Committee

Lebanon, TN- Tammy Smith, Assistant Wilson County Administrator of Elections, has been elected to the Executive Committee of the Elections Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EI-ISAC). Smith will join 13 other Executive Committee members, five of whom are elected by their peers to represent national local election officials.

The EI-ISAC is operated by the Center for Internet Security to improve the cybersecurity posture of the nation’s state, local, territorial and tribal election offices. EI-ISAC works in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and other federal partners. EI-ISAC provides a central resource for gathering information on cyber threats to the nation’s election infrastructure and a two-way sharing of that information between the public and private sectors to identify, protect, respond and recover from attacks on the public and private election infrastructure.

The EI-ISAC also works closely with organizations such as the National Council of ISACS, the National Association of Secretaries of State, the National Association of State Election Directors, the Election Center, and the International Association of Government Officials to build trusted relationships to enhance the national cybersecurity posture.

“I am honored to have been elected to serve on the first executive committee of EI-ISAC. Being a part of this organization that partners with election offices and officials nationwide to share information is an opportunity I look forward to,” said Smith.

Smith, a Tennessee State Certified Administrator, has served as the Assistant Administrator in Wilson County since 2011. Prior to coming to Wilson County, she served as the Administrator and election commissioner in Macon County. Smith earned the Certified Public Administrator designation from the University of Tennessee County Technical Service in 2013. She also serves on several committees for the Tennessee Association of County Election Officials.

The Wilson County Election Commission has been a member of EI-ISAC since its inception. Attention to the evolving cybersecurity threats to elections is an ongoing part of the preparation for every election.
