“What Do YOU Know About Elections and Cyber Security?”
The League of Women Voters St. Paul continues its series of election-related topics with a public program on cyber security and threats to our elections.
“What Do YOU Know About Elections and Cyber Security?” will be presented on Tuesday, February 18, 6:30pm – 8:00pm in the Ratskeller taproom at Summit Brewing (910 Montreal Circle, St. Paul, MN 55102). The event is free and open to the public, with opportunities to purchase beverages onsite. Interested participants can register on the LWVSP website, (www.lwvsp.org).
The program will delve into election cybersecurity from both a local and state perspective, with Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon leading the discussion on the state level and Ramsey County Elections Manager Dave Triplett, providing insight at the local level.
The presenters will discuss the initiative, “Investing In Democracy,” and participants will also learn about what a “Cyber Navigator” is, how the State will use some of the $380 million provided by Congress to secure our election infrastructure, and how the National Guard will be helping out with Election Security.
This program is part of LWVSP’s “Democracy, Discussion and Drinks” free public event series (“D3“).
