Georgetown Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection: “ex-CYBERSECURITY officials: CENSUS Bureau must address hacking concerns”

Via email:

On the heels of new indictments of Russians for hacking the 2016 election, former cybersecurity officials are warning that the nation’s “foundation for fair and just elections” — the Census — could be ripe for hacking.

Despite repeated calls from Congress and the public, the Census Bureau has yet to confirm that basic cybersecurity measures are in place for the nation’s first electronic census in 2020 — according to leading cybersecurity experts.

In a new letter coordinated by Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection, former White House, DHS, FBI, NSA, DOJ, ODNI, and State Department cyber and technology officials call on the Census Bureau to share publicly its cybersecurity preparations for the 2020 Census.
