The Digital Threat to Democracy

6:00 pm — John F. Kennedy School of Government - Institute of Politics, John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum

Join a moderated discussion examining how hacked elections are threatening democracy itself

The Digital Threat to Democracy

Cyber and digital attacks on campaigns and elections are a threat to our democracy and affect people of all political stripes. Over the past two years, nearly every election on both sides of the Atlantic has been affected by cyber-attacks. Foreign actors could target any political party at any time, and deterrence starts with strong cyber defense and public education.

The bipartisan initiative Defending Digital Democracy is co-sponsored by The Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, Institute of Politics and the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School.
