WEBINAR: 4 Election Security Educators Walk Into a Panel

What happens when four election security specialists gather together to talk shop? They dispel myths, share deep knowledge, and bring clarity to the state of our elections. As confusing contradictory messages abound on both sides of the aisle, we’ve assembled a crack team of election security educators in different fields to help explain to voters what exactly is going on.

(Pro tip: Don’t panic! Disinformation campaigns on the regular is normal and happens every election)

If you have questions about the security around the logistics of holding national elections during a pandemic, the increase and safety of mail-in ballots, the growing adoption of electronic voting machines and online registrations and how hackers might try to use malware to disrupt them — then this is one webinar you will not want to miss, as we round the homestretch toward the November 3rd election.

Meet Our Panelists

  • Maggie MacAlpine, a co-organizer of DEF CON’s Voting Village and recently featured in HBO’s “Kill Chain,” will outline what we’ve learned from security testing electronic voting machines as well as her experience as an election volunteer.

  • Michael Daniel, an election security policy expert and former cybersecurity coordinator for the Obama administration, will share historical context we can apply to the current election and why our election systems are more resilient than one may think based on the news.

  • Matt Olney from Cisco Talos will review recent research by his team on foreign disinformation tactics for election disruption, and why election results are not their true target.

  • Rachel Tobac, CEO of SocialProof Security and a frequent commentator on social engineering stories for outlets like CNN and the New York Times, will explain why those managing elections often pose a more attractive target for attackers than hardware.

“I’m looking forward to this panel because we’re getting to dig past the ubiquitous surface-level discussion of election security, and really break down the puzzle pieces that make up the whole picture. Our goal is that everyone who attends will walk away with a deeper understanding of the election safeguards we have in place and why this election isn’t as unique or unprecedented as one might think!” — Zoe Lindsey, Security Strategist at Duo
