Security risks surrounding the presidential election, and the importance of voter data protection

Potentially disruptive, and possibly violent, protests are likely in multiple U.S. cities amid the presidential election slated for today regardless of the outcome, according to WorldAware, a GardaWorld company. Due to the complexity of the electoral system and the consequences of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, it is highly likely that the winner of the election will not be legally recognized on election night and that major protests by activists supportive of both major parties will occur for an indeterminate period, with the possibility of clashes, arson, looting, and other violence, reaching unprecedented levels, says WorldAware.

Besides civil unrest and other physical security threats, the 2020 election also faces significant digital threats that could wreck havoc on U.S. election infrastructure and the legitimacy of the results.
