CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, calling our attention to not only personal information security but the security of future campaigns and elections.

“Based on the on experience in 2020, what we expect is more sophisticated attacks, more attacks because the bad actors have learned how easy it is to do, and so you have to be more vigilant,” said Adam Powell, Executive Director, USC Election Cyber Security Initiative.

The University of Southern California is holding an online cyber, campaign and election security workshop Thursday.

The informational class is accessible to the public and will start at 1:30 in the afternoon.

Election or campaign officials and workers are welcome to learn more about new security for the upcoming elections.

The work shop’s goal is to help people become knowledgeable about malware, ransomware and election fraud.

Speakers from homeland security will inform people who want to learn more about security or who work in elections.
