Campaign Cybersecurity Summit

Cyber threats pose an unprecedented risk to organizations small and large throughout the political campaign ecosystem. Everyone – from school board races, to presidential campaigns, state parties, national committees, campaign consultants and beyond – faces attacks with the potential to deliver irreparable harm. That’s why Campaigns & Elections and Defending Digital Campaigns have partnered to host an essential Cybersecurity Summit as part of the Digital Campaign Summit pregame.

The Cybersecurity Summit brings together the leading campaign cybersecurity experts: security professionals who understand the unique challenges and constraints of addressing this issue in the campaign context.
