2019 – Cybersecurity Study
Amid compelling daily ongoing developments, this study addresses:
- Privacy, cybersecurity, and election security
- Privacy and cybersecurity protocols now in effect
- Current legislation: privacy, cyber, and security, and election security
- “Cyber hygiene”, or privacy and transparency protection, a glossary, and other resources are included in appendices.
The need for this study arose from the League of Women Voters of Oregon’s lack of a position to support Oregon’s identity theft bill, HB 1551, addressing the 2017 Equifax data breach. Policymakers debate existing legislation—a fragmented regulatory framework which fails to provide comprehensive cybersecurity—in an effort to balance personal information privacy with accountability, transparency (information disclosure), and responsible oversight (Craig, Shackelford, & Hiller, 2015). Individuals have limited recourse to protect their personal privacy (Bamberger & Mulligan, 2013). Stakeholders must thoroughly consider regulatory actions to avoid unintended consequences (Messer, 2019) and try to future-proof laws in anticipation of the inevitable technological changes ahead (Kerry, 2018).
