When: Sunday February 10, 1:00pm for Networking & 1:30pm for the Program
Where: Simmons Auditorium, New Tepper Quad, CMU at 5000 Forbes Ave 15213
Speaker: The speaker for the Barbara Daly Danko Forum was David Hickton, the former United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, nominated by former President Barack Obama, and the founding Director of the University of Pittsburgh Institute for Cyber Law, Policy, and Security. As US Attorney Hickton created a dedicated section in the U.S. Attorney’s Office to focus on cybercrime and national security. At the Institute for Cyber Law, Policy, and Security he established and co-chairs the Blue Ribbon Commission on Pennsylvania’s Election Security, an independent, bipartisan commission studying Pennsylvania’s election cybersecurity.
Topic: Election Security! As a battleground state, and one with outdated election infrastructure, systems, and technologies, Pennsylvania is a prime target for hackers wishing to disrupt the US electoral process. The Blue Ribbon Commission assessed the cybersecurity of Pennsylvania’s election architecture, including voting machines and election management systems, the voter registration system, and recovery and resilience in the event of a cyberattack or other technological failure. The commission recently published a report which will provide practical recommendations to state and local Pennsylvania officials to better secure the state’s elections and will serve as a model for similar efforts in other states. Copies of the report will be available to Forum attendees.
Event Co-Sponsors: This event was co-sponsored by the 14th Ward Democratic Committee and the Carnegie Mellon University Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy.
Club Elections: The 14WIDC also held elections for new Board Members. Please see this page for the newly elected Board and officers.
