About the event

Would you know what to do if your campaign experienced a cyberattack? If you answered “no” and are a candidate, campaign staffer, or local party leader/volunteer, you need to make sure you attend this training.

NDTC’s CEO, Kelly Dietrich, will moderate a panel featuring Alison Goh, the Democratic National Committee’s Security Program Manager, and Michael Kaiser, Defending Digital Campaigns’ President and CEO.

All campaigns and political organizations need to be concerned about the risks of a cyberattack and the subsequent impact if an incident occurs. Learning some of the baseline solutions to prevent these attacks can go a long way. Organizations that are prepared in advance for an incident are able to drastically lessen the impact and demonstrate leadership and resilience. This training will help you understand possible risks and what your campaign can do to both mitigate and respond to them.
