Our Speaker

Dr. Aleksander Essex is an associate professor of software engineering with a specialization in cybersecurity and applied cryptography at Western University. He runs Whisper Lab, the Western Information Security and Privacy Research Laboratory.

His research is in cybersecurity, cryptography, and secure computation, which he uses to try and make the world a safer, more private place. He is fighting to secure our democratic institutions in the digital age through the development and standardization of trustworthy, publicly accountable election practices and technology. Aleks frequently comments on news stories involving election cybersecurity, online and electronic voting issues, and generally anything involving the implications of technology in the democratic process. He will be with us to speak about cyber security and electronic voting in the context of the upcoming 2022 Municipal Elections.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to ask a foremost expert your questions about the paper and online voting process planned by the Town of Wasaga Beach for our municipal election in October.
