About this talk

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? You will learn: - 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
