WASHINGTON (AP) – The Democratic National Committee is creating an advisory board on cybersecurity in the aftermath of an embarrassing email hack prior to the party’s national convention last month.

Interim DNC Chair Donna Brazile says in a memo obtained by The Associated Press that the board will work to prevent future attacks and ensure that the party’s cybersecurity capabilities are the best possible.

Brazile says in the memo that DNC lawyers have thoroughly reviewed the emails that were released and will be notifying affected individuals next week.

The hacked emails showed an apparent lack of neutrality in the primary race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, with some party officials disparaging Sanders.
