Abstract

The problems of cyberattacks have been frequent in all areas for several years, the use of technology has become an indispensable element in the environment of the electoral process and its activities to mitigate the risks of information. Above all, if one considers that in a process of this nature, it is fundamental to guarantee the security of the system, since they have become the target of cyberattacks that have generated problems by compromising the integrity of the information necessary for this democratic exercise. The main objective was to provide a prototype to mitigate the risks of the integrity of cyberattack information in electoral processes in Latin America. It was used the deductive method and the exploration research technique were applied to study the information of the cited articles. It resulted in a Prototype to mitigate risks of the integrity of cyberattack information, Prototype risk matrix, and Mitigation approach. It was concluded that through the prototype evaluation methods and the risk mitigation process, risk and its value were identified according to the probability of occurrence and impact of cyberattacks, thus classifying them into levels and focusing mitigation by means of security strategies that generate higher priority and protect the integrity of the information before any type, this allows us to feedback and continuously improve the electoral processes.
