Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Freedom of Information Act. Exempts from disclosure risk and vulnerability assessments, security measures, schedules, certifications, and response policies or plans that are designed to detect, defend against, prevent, or respond to potential cyber attacks upon the State's or an election authority's network systems, or records that the disclosure of which would, in any way, constitute a risk to the proper administration of elections or voter registration. Provides that the information is exempt only to the extent that disclosure could reasonably be expected to jeopardize the effectiveness of the measures or the safety of computer systems. Provides that the exemption applies to records held by the State Board of Elections, the Department of Innovation and Technology, election authorities, and any other necessary party to protect the administration of elections. Amends the Election Code. In provisions governing the administration of the cyber navigator program, directs the allocation of resources received in accordance with the 2018 Help America Vote Act Election Security Grant (instead of the allocation of resources received in accordance with the federal Help America Vote Act). Effective immediately.
