Cybersecurity: An Electoral Cycle Approach

Article by Dr. Holly Ann Garnett, RMC Prof

The security of elections is a key issue for the defence communities around the globe. Recent examples make the urgency of this issue clear: the 2017 Presidential elections in Kenya were declared invalid amidst allegations of problems with the electoral commission’s databases and computers; Estonia’s widely respected identity card system, which is used for i-voting in elections, was found to be susceptible to identity theft in 2016; and perhaps the most discussed current cybersecurity issue revolves around Russian hacking and meddling in the 2016 American presidential election. This presentation by RMC Assistant Professor of political science Holly Ann Garnett at the 2018 SERENE-RISC Cybersecurity conference considers the major security threats associated with elections by taking an electoral cycle approach, which considers not just what happens on election day, but an entire cycle of activities, running from the pre-electoral period when laws are designed and voters are registered, through the campaign and election day, to the aftermath of elections and the impact of the result.

The presentation can be found online here.

    Referring to the AETE article…why to Ottawa? As the last CO LETE here in Ottawa, who had to close it in the ’94 budget, regardless of the lack of logic…I can tell you that Ottawa (Fat Cat City) was, and always will be, a political target for closures.

    Bravo, Steve. LETE was an invaluable part of the engineering side of RCEME. Its mindless closure was both stupid and tragic.
