The meeting comes after Governor Ron Desantis confirmed that two counties were breached via an email scam during the 2016 election.

The Department of Homeland Security is presenting on a panel Wednesday.

Orange County Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles says this will help prevent future hacks.

“This is a way to talk about what they’re seeing in the cyber world,” Cowles said. “What updates are available for you for prevention going forward.” 

The hackers impersonated VR Systems, a Tallahassee elections vendor, to access voter information files.

The FBI identified Washington County, located between Pensacola and Tallahassee, as one of two counties involved in the cyberattack.
