COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted will attend an election security workshop in Southwest Ohio Friday afternoon to meet with attendees and talk to reporters about his office’s efforts to further strengthen election security.
Hosted by the Secretary of State’s office, this workshop provides local elections officials with an opportunity to evaluate their readiness to deal with cyber threats by participating in a mock election that mirrors real-world scenarios.
In June, Secretary Husted announced his office would host five trainings around the state at the 2018 Election Officials Summer Conference as part of a broader effort that builds on the work already done to secure the state’s elections. Friday’s event in Cincinnati is the final workshop scheduled. Funding for these events was provided through the Help America Vote Act (HAVA).
