U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen to Visit Dartmouth

The senator will discuss Russian interference in U.S. politics.

Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars

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. Her talk is titled “Russian Interference in American Politics and Cyber Threats to Our Democracy.”

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.
