Issue status: 

There are heightened sensitivities during an election period, which require particular care and restraint.

To that end, this document sets out principles and protocols to manage engagement by the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS) and Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB), in the event that a foreign-state actor attempts to interfere in New Zealand’s 2017 general election, or there is a cyber-security threat that threatens to undermine it.
