WHEAT RIDGE, CO (January 23rd, 2020) – SLI Compliance®’s Voting System Test Laboratory (VSTL) team participated in the CO Secretary of State Election Preparedness for Infrastructure and Cybersecurity training on January 22nd, 2020 in Colorado Springs, CO.  The training sessions are an “election style war games” exercise to prepare county clerks for “worst-case scenarios” in election administration.

One of the few of its kind to take place in the U.S., the event allowed participants to review and discuss various scenarios that could present themselves ahead of the 2020 presidential election.  A similar training took place in 2018 that covered cybersecurity and physical security issues and included participants from the U.S. Dept of Homeland Security, U.S. Election Assistance Commission, National Association of Secretaries of State and 167 county representatives. Maryland, Iowa, Ohio, New York and New Jersey are the only other states that have used federal grants for similar training sessions.
