SECURING DEMOCRACY: Addressing cybersecurity concerns around our elections
With Leon Jaimes, Founder and Principal Consultant, Sollievo IT

Friday, Sept. 18, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
Join Zoom meeting

For perhaps the first time, many Americans are genuinely worried about the integrity of our upcoming election. The impact of COVID-19, concerns over gerrymandering, evidence of foreign governments spreading disinformation, changes to voting systems, accusations of voter suppression and more are creating mistrust about the election process itself. One critical area involves cybersecurity, and the ways in which malicious agents can spread disinformation, access household, business and government computers and networks, and compromise voting mechanisms. Please join us for an important interactive discussion about cybersecurity and steps you can take to help secure our democratic elections!
