Computer Voting: A 'National Disgrace'

Leading the latest edition of the ISMG Security Report: Barbara Simons, co-author of the book "Broken Ballots," discusses why she believes it's a "national disgrace" that some states are relying on computer voting with no provision for recounts.

In this report, you'll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • Simons highlight her concerns about the security of computerized election machines to be used for this year's midterm elections;
  • Jeremy Kirk, Information Security Media Group's managing editor, security and technology, analyze the impact that the destruction of a key computer could have on a breach-related lawsuit against Premera Blue Cross;
  • Laurence Pitt of Juniper Networks outline potential use cases for blockchain in security management and authentication.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don't miss the Aug. 24 and Aug. 31 editions, which respectively discuss why it's too late to secure the 2018 midterm elections and Russian bots and trolls spreading misinformation on vaccines via social media.
