Pitt Cyber and Institute of Politics host Ga. secretary of state

Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger will speak at a Nov. 8 event, hosted by Pitt Cyber and the Institute of Politics.

The virtual event, which takes place at noon, is part of Pitt Cyber’s bipartisan “Protecting Democracy and Securing Our Elections…” series, where experts gather to discuss election security, democracy and more.

Raffensperger has called for vote reform in his state and famously denied former President Donald Trump’s requests to overturn the 2020 election based on his dubious and baseless claims, which have not held up in courts across the country.

Pitt Cyber’s Founding Director David Hickton also will join the virtual event to discuss approaches to election security, accessibility and preparation for the 2022 elections.

Registration is available through Zoom.
