[ONLINE] - Information Security, Minority Communities, and 2022 Election


November’s upcoming midterm elections are the first federally administered elections since 2020, which were notable for the numerous attempts to cast doubt on the legitimacy and security of the presidential election. The presidential election also highlighted the role of information security and operations in election, and how mis/dis/malinformation interacts with the US democratic process. As the US heads into election season, why should election security expand to include information security, and how does this impact minority communities within the US?

New America’s #ShareTheMicInCyber Fellowship program is pleased to invite the public for a virtual panel discussion on the role of information security and operations in election security. There will be a moderated panel discussion, followed by an audience Q&A session.
