ZorroSign CEO submitted testimony to U.S. House Homeland Security Committee

Blockchain technology can help make electronic voting more secure, safer and auditable, while
protecting the integrity of U.S. elections

PHOENIX (PRWEB) September 03, 2020 — Shamsh Hadi, CEO of ZorroSign, Inc. submitted testimony last
month to the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security. Hadi reinforced the benefits of blockchain and its
critical role in helping to secure U.S. elections while making them safer and auditable, protecting their integrity.
“Blockchain technology can be employed by voting machine vendors across the country to significantly
enhance and upgrade the security and reliability of electronic voting systems,” noted Hadi in testimony
submitted in August to the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, Subcommittee on Cybersecurity,
Infrastructure Protection and Innovation. ZorroSign is a pioneer of real electronic signature and a patented
document fraud and tampering detection system built on blockchain.

On August 4, 2020 the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security held a hearing on, “Secure, Safe, and
Auditable: Protecting the Integrity of the 2020 Elections.” Mr. Hadi’s written testimony will be part of the
committee’s official hearing record. The hearing was held as part of the committee’s ongoing effort to develop
a better understanding on how blockchain technology can benefit the election process.
“Throughout my career in the high-tech industry, and especially through my work as CEO of a technology
company that lives and breathes data and security, I have come to learn that blockchain can and should be an
essential component to any election security framework,” said Hadi in his testimony. Mr. Hadi also pointed to a
February 2019 paper on blockchain issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that
concluded that blockchain is “…an ideal candidate to record and secure data exchanges.”

Hadi noted that, “blockchain has a very real and pertinent application when it comes to electronic voting: voter
registration, personal identity, and voting records,” he also explained, “blockchain is important because it has
unique qualities that set it apart from other transaction database management systems. Specifically, blockchain
is being used today in private, permissions-based decentralized systems that are secure, trusted and automated
with standards that can now surpass bank grade security. Ultimately, blockchain technology helps make digital
transactions more secure, faster and less expensive.”

Hadi went on to say, “blockchain can and should be utilized by electronic voting systems to store the voting
record of each voter. If the goal is to ensure that our elections in 2020 are true, fair and honest, then recording
each voter’s voting record on blockchain where the record cannot be altered is highly recommended.
Blockchain technology could help centralize the U.S. election process by validating the voter, and making
counting votes more secure and efficient because the ledger would clearly identify who voted and where the
vote came from.”

“The thoughtful and intentional employment of blockchain within electronic voting systems in the U.S. would
protect the fabric of our democracy and maintain confidence in the integrity of our elections,” summarized
