    Conducting Elections in an Era of Cyber Threats

    As the nation heads into an important presidential election, many jurisdictions are still utilizing voting equipment developed under standards that have not seen a substantial update in years. Furthermore, many of the voting machines in use are approaching or have passed their intended life cycle. As counties search for solutions to get through this year’s elections and beyond, the question remains of how to integrate ever evolving technology into one of the fundamental actions that defines our democracy – voting. In this session, attendees will hear the latest discussion on the intersection of voting and technology in the era of cyber threats.
