There have been a lot of questions regarding the safety of the EU elections, including the EU's ability protect voters from disinformation and what measures have the EU taken to prevent voting systems from hackers. Deputy Director-General Claire Bury will be discussing what DG Connect has been doing to answer these questions alongside informing us what is next for DG Connect.

There will be 20 minutes of networking prior to this event.
