As the November 2018 midterm elections got underway across the United States, information security experts were keeping a close eye on how they unfolded. While some of these experts may have felt politically invested in the elections, most of them followed them with a critical eye on security. Similar to American businesses, voter registration and electoral systems have been proven to be very vulnerable to cyber attacks.
The National Spotlight on Network Security & Protection
Politicians and network security specialists will both agree that American democracy could probably use a good measure of network protection, which should start with voter registration and extend to the actual balloting systems. Quite a few audits of Secretary of State elections offices around the U.S. have determined that network security is lacking, and one of the reasons for this troubling issue is that these systems are not being managed as a business.
