Excelsior College will host a webinar on Election Cybersecurity in New York State on Wednesday, October 21 at 2 p.m. ET. Many election commissions and agencies are working on ways to be better prepared to prevent and handle election security threats. States across the country are implementing efforts to combat cyber risks and ensure this November’s local, state, and federal elections are conducted safely. In current news, the cybersecurity community is facing malware from Trickbot, which threatens to disrupt the upcoming elections.

Join Jeffrey Baez, chief information security officer for the New York State Board of Elections and director of the Secure Elections Center, to learn about how the State Board of Elections is addressing and remediating cyber risks to ensure we have secure and reliable elections.
