CYBER 24 Episode 31: Protecting Utah elections from hackers

By the time you are listening to this podcast the 2018 Election will be just a few weeks away and voters in Utah will have ballots in-hand ready to be filled out and mailed back.

Casting a ballot for the candidate of your choice is among the most American things we do… and increasingly it has been the subject of more intense discussion, based primarily on the idea that foreign states have attempted and will attempt to disrupt the election process.

On this week’s pod, we sit down with Mark Mitchell, the director of elections systems in the Utah Election Office to discuss what how the state coordinates with county clerks and poll workers to make sure the ballot you cast stays confidential and safe.
