Disinfo Discussions: John Poulos

John Poulos is the President and CEO of Dominion Voting, a leading industry supplier of election technology across the United States. Dominion is one of several suppliers of election technology in the United States that became a target of rampant disinformation after the 2020 presidential election. Poulos joined Commission Co-chair Chris Krebs, founding director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, to discuss the effects on his company of the Big Lie that the election was stolen, as well as the active role business executives must play in preventing disinformation from spreading across their own companies to maintain trust in their brands.

This session is part of a series of expert briefings hosted in tandem with our Commission on Information Disorder to help make sense of the various facets of the information crisis. “Disinfo Discussions” is designed as a resource for the commissioners as well as the broader public.
