The League of Women Voters of Portland will host a timely program, Privacy and Cybersecurity Today, based on a new study by the League of Women Voters of Oregon. 

LWVOR President Becky Gladstone, a previous member of the study committee, will be the featured speaker. The program is Tuesday, March 10, 7-8:30 pm at the Multnomah County Boardroom, 501 SE Hawthorne Blvd.

The public is invited to attend this free program to learn more about privacy, cybersecurity, and election security; current protocols for privacy and cybersecurity; current legislation on privacy, cybersecurity and election security; and “cyber hygiene,” or privacy and transparency protection.

Concerns about identity theft, security for personal accounts, internet security, surveillance and privacy, election security and cyber warfare have alarmed the public for the past decade. 

A one-year study of these issues began in May 2019 and is expected to be completed before March. 

Once the study report is approved by the LWVOR Board of Directors, the entire study will be released and available to the public online at lwvor.org/studies/#cybersecurity.

LWV of Portland’s Civic Education programs are free and open to the public. Programs are designed to inform the community about current issues.  

Street parking is available and the Multnomah County Boardroom is easily accessed by public transportation. TriMet options include bus lines 4, 6, 10, 14, 15, and the Portland Streetcar.
