March 13, 2020 – AUSTIN, TEXAS Ahead of the 2020 elections, CyberDefenses is partnering with the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) to help promote their #TrustedInfo2020 initiative, a year-long voter education effort.
The goal of #TrustedInfo2020 is to communicate to the American people that election officials are their trusted sources for credible and accurate election information. By directing voters to election officials’ websites and social media pages, it will not only ensure voters are getting election information in a timely manner, but will also cut down on the misinformation and disinformation that can surround elections.
“We are thrilled to have CyberDefenses as a partner to help promote #TrustedInfo2020! As election officials, my colleagues and I are constantly seeking ways to increase voter education and awareness. We believe this education effort will provide American voters verified election information so they can easily participate in 2020 and beyond,” explains Paul Pate, NASS President and Iowa Secretary of State.
“When we work with states and counties to strengthen their election security, our scope includes improving security around election communications. We provide guidance on secure communications best practices which includes encouraging voters to rely only on official information sources,” Armando Ordonez, CEO CyberDefenses describes. “The NASS #TrustedInfo2020 initiative is a great way to support election officials in these important voter awareness efforts.”
