This series of elections and voting security podcasts feature experts who expose and make recommendations for the vast numbers of security flaws in voting machines, many over 10, 15, and even 20 years old.

Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2018 -- Des Moines, Iowa – Leading up to the 2018 midterm elections, Rebecca Herold, host of Data Security & Privacy with The Privacy Professor on the VoiceAmerica Business channel, has provided a series of five shows to date covering elections and voting systems security discussions with a wide range of voting security experts and elections officials.

"I want to help raise awareness of the problems that exist within the USA voting systems. Large numbers of objective research show increasing numbers of data security flaws and vulnerabilities in the wide range of voting machines, some of which are over 10, 15, and even 20 years old. I also want to encourage everyone who votes to notice when they are using voting machines, to check and make sure that their vote was recorded correctly. As some of my guests in this series of voting and elections security shows indicated, some of the old voting machines, and even some of the discovered defective newer voting machines, have design flaws and security problems that result in altering votes," Rebecca Herold explained.

Rebecca's series of five shows so far on this topic include:

- 10/23/2018: "Security Views from an Elections Official and Voting Security Expert" with Genya Coulter, one of the Top 25 Women in Election Security and Tech

- 10/2/2018: "Turning A Blind Eye Does Not Fix Voting Security Vulnerabilities" with Jake Braun, Executive Director of the University of Chicago Harris Cyber Policy Initiative and CEO of Cambridge Global Advisors
