Ransomware attacks have become more common over the years. Last week a coordinated attack affected 23 towns in Texas. These attacks lock down computer systems, requiring owners to pay a "ransom" to regain control. KDNK's Lucas Turner spoke with Carbondale Town Manager Jay Harrington about the town's efforts to mitigate these attacks as well as the planned response to such an event.
KDNK's Raleigh Burleigh attended the Colorado County Clerks Association Summer Conference to learn more about the efforts made to maintain the legitimacy of our democratic processes. He spoke with Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams and David Becker, author of the 2012 Pew report that President Trump has repeatedly cited to suggest "massive voter fraud" in the United States. The overall emphasis was reassuring the public that county clerks work year-round to assure the integrity of Colorado's voting systems.
