Election Cybersecurity Workshop - Colorado and four other states (September 9th 2021)
September 9th from 12:30pm to 2:30pm Mountain Daylight Time
You, your colleagues, students and all of our friends at The University of Denver are invited to join a virtual Election Cybersecurity Workshop for Colorado and four other states on Thursday, September 9th from 12:30pm to 2:30pm Mountain Daylight Time.
As we have seen continuous cyberattacks from foreign adversaries including Russia, cybersecurity and ransomware threats are evolving, and disinformation tools are changing, so our workshop presentations have been updated. In addition, to presentations by cybersecurity experts, we will include presentations on new security resources available from government and industry.
Attached is a one-pager that briefly describes our initiative and the invitation flyer. You can register either by clicking “Info & RSVP” on the flyer or via this link
