Please join the Center for Strategic and International Studies in welcoming the Cyberspace Solarium Commission for a timely conversation and rollout of the Commission's election security and societal resilience recommendations. 

The Cyberspace Solarium Commission (CSC) is a bipartisan, intergovernmental, and multisector group that was established by Congress in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act. The Commission was tasked with developing a comprehensive national strategy to defend the United States in cyberspace. In advance of the Commission's release of its full report in mid-March, the Commission will be previewing the parts of the report relevant to protecting different aspects of the electoral process. 

Following opening remarks by Senator Angus King (I-ME, CSC Co-Chair), Commissioners Suzanne Spaulding and Patrick Murphy will join experts in the fields of election security and countering disinformation to debate and dialogue how we can best protect our democracy from cyber and cyber-enabled threats.
