The Aspen Institute hosted a virtual conversation with Acting CISA Director Brandon Wales as part of its 2020 Aspen Cyber Summit. Mr. Wales discussed several topics, including the 2020 election, the coronavirus pandemic, and the state of cybersecurity, including the nation’s cyber infrastructure. When asked about the November statement by former Director Christopher Krebs, which stated the 2020 election was the most secure in history--resulting in Mr. Krebs' dismissal from the agency by President Trump--the acting director said the “agency stands by the statement.” He went on to clarify that claims of election fraud are “beyond the scope of work” they do. Mr. Wales explained that such claims fall under the purview of the Department of Justice. close
