A visit to campus by U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) originally scheduled for earlier this month, will take place on Feb. 20, when she will speak at 11 a.m. in Alumni Hall.
New Hampshire’s senior senator will talk and take questions about Russian interference in U.S. politics and the threat of foreign intrusion into American cybersecurity networks.
Shaheen called for congressional hearings on Russian meddling in the 2016 elections and sounded the alarm on the dangers of Kaspersky Lab, a Kremlin-linked software company used by federal agency computer systems and networks. Shaheen’s legislation banning the Moscow-based company from government computers was signed into law last year.
Her talk will focus on her efforts to defend against cyberattacks from U.S. adversaries, including raising public awareness about what she says is the threat that Kaspersky still poses, and the ongoing danger of Russian interference in the 2018 elections.
The event is free and open to the public.
