The 2020 presidential election season is already ramping up, making the battle against election and campaign cyber threats more important than ever. Join us for this update to our previous program, "Cybersecurity and Election Interference and Integrity" as we discuss what has changed in the last year, recent data breach events, and the state of cybersecurity for federal and state campaigns and elections, including an overview of the state and federal election administration and a breakdown of the threats to voter data and election systems.
This discussion will be led by Ari M. Schwartz, the Managing Director of Cybersecurity Services at Venable LLP and the former senior director for cybersecurity on the United States National Security Council Staff at the White House, and Ronald M. Jacobs, the co-chair of Venable LLP's Political Law Group.
