Election Threats – Past, Present & Future

Election Threats – Past, Present & Future

19 April 2022

In partnership with the University of Pittsburgh Institute for Cyber Law, Policy & Security and Institute of Politics, the Azure Forum supported an online discussion on the subject of “Election Threats – Past, Present & Future” on Wednesday 19 April 2023.

The discussion analysed the securing of elections with a view to protecting democracy. As preparations begin for the third Summit for Democracy, following the recent Summit in March 2023, a key near term goal has been to improve coordination on international support for democracy. Securing elections from hybrid, cyber and other nefarious risks is one crucial aspect of protecting our democracies globally.

The discussion on Wednesday 19 April 2023 was moderated by David Hickton (Founding Director at Pitt Cyber and Distinguished Fellow at the Azure Forum) together with the former United States Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, and Visiting Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center, Mary McCord. Experts explored both historical and current threats to our election security as part of a series on Protecting Democracy and Securing Our Elections.

This event was hosted in partnership with the Azure Forum for Contemporary Security Strategy, the Centre for Strategy and International Studies in Washington DC, and Keep Our Republic.
