2023 Election: BVAS Data Will Be Safeguarded- INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission has guaranteed that the data on the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System will be secure and not compromised before the general elections in 2023.

This was stated by Lawrence Bayode, Deputy Director of ICT at INEC, on Wednesday morning while taking questions for the Channels TV Sunrise programme.

Additionally, Bayode stated that the BVAS wouldn’t be compromised on election day.

“I want to reiterate that we have taken all necessary steps to guarantee that the BVAS is not compromised,” he stated. The BVAS data will be protected.

“After the poll, when the data is transmitted to our backend server, the data in transit will be secured. By the time the data gets to our backend server, the data will also be secured there.

“We have looked at the machine, and we looked at a lot of things. As I said earlier, you cannot build such a system and would not fortify the system to solidify it.

“Whether we like it or not, people will try a lot to beat this system. But the more they try, the more they meet a brick wall.

“I can say categorically that we have taken care of every surface attack vulnerability on this system, and we have also tried our best to ensure that the system cannot be hacked into on Election Day and I can say again that BVAS cannot be compromised.”
