Cybersecurity and Privacy Study

League of Women Voters of Oregon’s Privacy and Cybersecurity positions were adopted in January 2020 after study and consensus. The 2020 elections further magnified election privacy and cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Election systems—the cornerstone of democracy—are recognized as critical cyber infrastructure. Defending democracy requires protecting our election systems from escalating cyber-attacks and disinformation. We cannot wait, we need these positions now.

U.S. state and national policy makers have joined the global debate over online protection of personal information. Tech companies convert personal information into multi-billion dollar advertising revenues, while experts now characterize media platforms’ information manipulation as ‘information disorder.’ The looming policy debate will determine both the future of privacy and the future of the internet. The League of Women Voters needs to adopt a position so they can have a voice in the policy debate.
