Is Online Voting Secure?
November 26, 2018
Yes, Very Secure. While the FWAct does not prohibit companies from using online voting platforms, it may imply risks for the employers and employees especially if sensitive information is being discussed in the enterprise agreement. As such requires a more sophisticated platform that would not only provide convenience to both parties but also provide the needed data security for protection.
For companies who have votes of all sizes, albeit 1 person to 100,000, it is highly recommended to partner up with online voting service providers with proven experience, credibility and capability such as Vero Voting.
