In a November 1 article in the National Law Journal and ALM’s Cybersecurity Law & Strategy, Roy Hadley provides insight into the growing security fears regarding elections in the United States.
Roy identifies potential security risks and possible solutions in the electoral process, ranging from voting machines and vendors to personnel training and penetration testing. He emphasizes the role of local and municipal government’s authority in the process, and how a government’s approach to cybersecurity is no different than how an enterprise might approach detecting and reacting to a security breach.
“The integrity of the electoral process is the underpinning to our democracy. It is incumbent upon all of us to ensure that we are doing all that we can to protect this process,” he says.
