Sources of Risk in Elections Security

Three of my student researchers - Hannah Locraft, Priya Gajendiran, and Megan Price - along with COL Paul Goethals and I published a paper at the 2019 Industrial and Systems Engineering Research Conference. This paper addresses sources of risk in elections security and provides an overview of our cyber, physical, and insider systems approach to securing polling places. We also examine data from a 2018 Center for American Progress report for connections to a state’s relative security, as rated by CAP, and the 2016 Presidential Election. Check out the Cybersecurity section of my Projects page for the paper and coded data used in our analysis.
