Ms Fenumiai,

In order to help narrow down the search, I would specifically like any internal ransomware training that the State of Alaska has provided to elections staff and those who support the election infrastructure. I would like any training provided between January 1st 2020 through the beginning of August 2020.

Please let me know if you require any additional clarification.

Thank you!
