How is Security for Election Processes and Election Management Systems Addressed with these Programs?

How is security for Election processes and Election Management systems addressed with these programs?

A Security Assessment and Social Engineering hacker blocking is a critical line of defense.
The real focus of Security for Election Systems is two-fold:

1. Close the gaps to social engineering

Coeur Group’s program provides specialized assessment and training on blocking Social Engineering attacks. In almost all cases the cause of recent security breaches in government systems has been the use of Social Engineering.  That is, “TRICKING” an individual into downloading a “Free Program”, directing someone to a website for a bogus freebee (coupon offers, movie downloads, free songs etc.)

2. Conduct A Security Assessment and develop an “Actionable” Security Improvement Roadmap

Coeur Group’s Security Assessment and Plan that focuses on:

• Operational Security Controls
• Security Training

Bottom line…this program helps the Election Administrators address the critical concerns of the Voting Public today, including:

• Transparency to constituents
• Secure operations

• Standards based processes
• An actionable Improvement roadmap
• Building Public trust

Coeur Group utilizes proven Methods, Models and Tools to address the critical Election Processes and security and improvements.

Election Systems and Processes Are Targeted

Election Systems and Processes are Targeted

We know that voting information has been the target of hackers. News reports indicate as many as 39 states were penetrated, focusing on campaign finance, registration and even personal data.

Most of these consolidated databases (the Election Management Systems) are contained at the State/County level which update voter registration information on a periodic basis. These databases, of course, must be protected at the County and State levels with secure access. Coeur Group program incorporates these systems as well as the focus for Election Systems is on the Elections Workforce Security, Social Engineering Knowledge and Operational Readiness.

Election Administrator’s Immediate Needs Supported

Election Administrator’s Immediate Needs Supported

The REAL and Immediate focus for Election Administrators is two-fold:

 

  1. Prevent undermining voters’ faith by making the voting process transparent and fully standardized across a jurisdiction. This has been Russia’s most valuable actual Hack to date! That is… Scaring the American Public!
  2. The second focus is to stop security intrusions more rapidly and effectively. This is NOT ONLY about Voter System Security, but about Election Operations and Workforce preparedness.
