Cyber Threats to Campaigns and Elections

This event has passed.

Campaigns and elections take place in cyberspace.  Voters get their information online, campaigns are increasingly run online, digital advertising is exploding, all promising to provide more and better information for an informed citizenry.  But with these tools come questions and dangers: what safeguards are needed to protect against foreign influence, what policies should internet platforms adopt on campaign advertising and to protect against malicious actors, should there be more government regulation of the digital campaign space?

The new Cyber Policy Center at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute (FSI) has just released the report Securing American Elections, which addresses these questions.  Join us for discussion of cyber campaign issues with Nate Persily, Stanford Law Professor and Senior Fellow at FSI and Alex Stamos, Adjunct Professor at FSI and former Chief Security Officer at Facebook.

The event will be webcast. Lunch will also be served!
