During the weeks leading up to the Cyber Symposium, Lead Stories staff spoke with Lindell and a member of his team, and national election security and cybersecurity experts.To ensure accuracy and provide expert assessment of the materials, Lead Stories arranged to send to the symposium Robert Graham, a cybersecurity expert well known for inventing several internet security tools. Graham will examine any data Lindell releases and consult with us in assessing them. You can follow him live on Twitter via @ErrataRob (and Lead Stories via @LeadStoriesCom).
