The League of Women Voters of Kent County will sponsor a virtual lecture, Securing Maryland’s Voting Processes, on November 10, 2021, at 7 PM. The lecture will feature Dr. Natalie Scala and Dr. Josh Hehlinger, both of Towson University, speaking on election security and the integrity of our election processes. The presentation will highlight the research results of three projects related to their work in election security: threat analysis and mitigations of Maryland voting systems; development of effective cybersecurity training modules for election judges; and threat analysis of mail-based voting, given COVID related impacts to election security.
Dr. Scala is associate professor and director of the graduate programs in supply chain management in the College of Business and Economics at Towson University. She has earned the University System of Maryland Board of Regents Award for Excellence in Public Service, the system’s highest faculty honor, for her work in election security.
