Topic: How Did We Get Here? Challenges to Campaigns and Elections Through the YearsDescription: The 2016 election revealed how vulnerable we have become to malign influence and cyber operations targeting our election infrastructure and processes.

Harvey is the former Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Resilience Policy on the National Security Council Staff, and over the past 15 years, has helped author a wide variety of plans, policies, and doctrine to foster resilience through effective risk management.
