Abstract

The problems of information security in the cyber environment regarding vulnerabilities and threats in an electoral process is persistent; the use of technology in political activities for popular elections, through electronic or digital voting, implemented in some Latin American countries, its results have not been acceptable; because they have been criticized by politicians and citizens indicating that transparency is needed in the electoral process. The objective is to focus on the cyber environment to present an alternative to mitigate vulnerabilities and threats in an electoral process considering the integral aspects, understand the benefits it grants, the expenses involved, the probable risks required. It was used the deductive method and exploratory research to analyze the reference articles. It turned out a prototype of the data record, as an alternative that allows the electronic system to establish security mechanisms with confidentiality, integrity, authentication, authorization, accessibility and availability. It was concluded that to comply with an electronic vote with acceptable results and meeting international standards, it is necessary to invest in adequate technology, train people who will participate in the electoral process and establish security mechanisms that mitigate cyber attacks in their environment.
