While many aspects of the plan are still in the works, Haas said it will start with giving a simple piece of advice to the 3,000 elections officials across the state with access to the voter files.
"Protect your passwords, have strong passwords, change them, don't share them," he said.
But an information security expert told the I-TEAM he would like to see more than a password protecting access to such delicate files.
Alex Holden runs Hold Security, a Mequon firm that has uncovered some of the largest data breaches in history.
Holden, born in Russia, said foreign actors are simply too advanced.
"State sponsored actors are often extremely well organized in their methods," Holden said. "Their techniques exceed our current defenses. They can bypass a lot of safeguards we have in place."
What Holden would like to see is what's called "multi-factor" authentication.
That requires a user proves who they are when the log in, usually by entering a one-time code that sent through email or over the phone.
"Banks, social media, email -- they have millions or tens of millions of customers and they manage to do that. 3,000 people should be a relatively simple way to do this," Holden said.
