Seventy CEO David Thornburgh has been named to the newly-formed, independent, non-partisan Blue Ribbon Commission on Pennsylvania's Election Security at the The University of Pittsburgh Institute for Cyber Law, Policy, and Security (Pitt Cyber).
The commission will conduct research surrounding three crucial issues:
Cybersecurity of voting machines, tabulation and storage;
Cybersecurity of voter registration, rolls and databases;
and Resiliency and recovery of Pennsylvania’s electoral system following a potential breach.
The commission will present a report of findings to the public in 2019 that provides recommendations to local and state elected officials to better secure the state’s elections in advance of the general elections in 2020.
