Securing Elections Systems: Risks & Solutions

The 2020 elections are expected to attract record numbers of voters. Local governments need to prepare to manage a bigger turnout — and the potential for contentious results given the current political climate. But many polling sites – parks, churches, schools, etc. – are remote, making permanent, highly-secure network connections impractical. How can cities and counties reduce the risks of unsecured networks and compromised voter data?

We’ll discuss:

  • The current elections landscape
  • How city and county IT staff can spin up, spin down, and manage networks, ensure site-to-site transmission protection, and provide safe network communication.
  • Tactics local governments can use to ensure reliable, secure connectivity for pop-up voting centers

Join speakers Todd Krautkremer, Chief Marketing Officer at Cradlepoint, and Otto Doll, former Minneapolis CIO and Senior Fellow at the Center for Digital Government, on June 6th at 11am PT / 2pm ET to find out how local governments can secure election-day technologies while ensuring constant network uptime and protecting critical voter information.
