A Continuing Legal Education event:
Although the Senate Intelligence Committee recently reviewed security planning by state and local election officials as part of its investigation into foreign interference in the 2016 election and concluded “that U.S. election infrastructure is fundamentally resilient”, concerns about election integrity persist at every level of our government. As mid-term elections approach, government officials, local citizens, advocates, and attorneys continue to grapple with the complexities of securing the vote in advance of November 6, 2018. On October 2, 2018, The Institute for Privacy Protection will host a CLE including speakers from the Brennan Center. Our speakers will discuss the role of law, policy, and technology in maintaining secure elections. This CLE will allow registrants to become more familiar with the following: cybersecurity voting issues, the use of blockchain as it relates to election integrity and cybersecurity, different ways government officials might enhance prevention, detection, and remediation around election integrity issues, and applicable laws and policies.
