CANCELED – HACK THE VOTE: CYBERSECURITY TODAY (3-19-20)

THIS EVEMT HAS BEEN CANCELED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR A LATER DATE
Intrinium’s Stephen Heath is by now perhaps IEEE Spokane’s single most popular speaker.

Stephen will once again leverage his extensive experience — augmented by this year’s additional travel to combat cyber attacks across the USA — to address the dangerous landscape and current trends in the rapidly changing world of cyber security, in his upcoming presentation at Luigi’s downtown. This will be his 6th annual IEEE presentation on this exciting topic. Early registration is recommended.

Presentation: On July 22, 2016, three days before the Democratic National Convention, nearly 20,000 emails belonging to DNC operatives were leaked. Chaos erupted into what was already a contentious primary, leaving the Democratic Party hopelessly divided and paving the way for a shocking upset in November. One year later at DEFCON 24 in Las Vegas, NV, the first of its kind Election Hacking Village debuted — challenging the notion that our election system was secure and “unhackable.” The results were surprising! In this conversation, Intrinium’s Stephen Heath will lead you through the strange history of manipulating elections, look at controls put in (?Putin?) place to protect our representative democracy, and attempt to answer the question: how secure is our democratic process?

Speaker: Stephen Heath is Partner and Advisory CISO at Intrinium, Inc., a nationwide security consultancy devoted to transforming, securing, and managing clients information networks. Stephen is a lifelong Spokane resident and proud graduate of Eastern Washington University with a Bachelors and Masters of Science in Computer Science.
