Our great friends over at Cybereason have written an excellent article on the multiple ways an election for public office can be hacked. The article focuses on a recent exercise Cybereason organized in partnership with multiple police departments in Massachusetts.
One team was focused on spreading disinformation regarding parts of the election process while the other was focused on trying to stop them. It’s really an interesting read and we highly recommend taking the time to go over it.
