ASSESSMENTS TAKE THE GUESSWORK OUT OF ELECTION SECURITY
by Brian Engle, CISO and Director of Advisory Services
Securing elections sounds as if it should be straightforward, but the reality is it is anything but. It requires knowing precisely where there are gaps in your security program and where and how an attack is most likely to occur.
A thorough security assessment is a concrete first step that builds a solid foundation for a good security program focused on defending the right attack areas and dedicated to the best use of resources. And an assessment requires surprisingly little time or resource commitments from election departments. It is one of those exercises that can seem daunting, but the actual process for the election team is simple and doesn’t take long.
