Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
Seldom Progress Achieved on Voting Security
Recall from one of my previous posts, the voting system of the United States is vulnerable in terms of Cyber-attacks. According to usnews.com, the United States has taken miniscule action in order to increase the security of our voting systems. According to a report from the Brennan Center for Justice – a “division of the New York University School of Law focused on democracy and justice issues” 41 out of 50 states have voting systems that are at least 10 years old, only three states since 2016 have revoked their voting systems. It is estimated that in 2018 and for at least the near future, 43 states will use voting systems that are discontinued/no longer manufactured, which imposes major security risks to these states.
