Watch Now

The 2020 elections are expected to attract record numbers of voters. Local governments need to prepare to manage a bigger turnout — and the potential for contentious results given the current political climate. But many polling sites – parks, churches, schools, etc. – are remote, making permanent, highly-secure network connections impractical. How can cities and counties reduce the risks of unsecured networks and compromised voter data?

Join us June 6 at 11:00am PT/2:00pm ET to find out how local governments can secure election-day technologies while ensuring constant network uptime and protecting critical voter information.

We’ll discuss:
- The current elections landscape
- How city and county IT staff can spin up, spin down and manage networks, ensure site-to-site transmission protection and provide safe network communication
- Tactics local governments can use to ensure reliable, secure connectivity for pop-up voting centers
