Securing the 2020 Election: ‘We’re Not Out of the Woods Yet’
“I don’t think the impact on the tabulation, and the counting of votes is going to come to fruition,” says John Dickson, principal at Denim Group. “There might be influence operations, but no disruption of polling.” Tonight – when all eyes are on the Web, the news, and the election reporting – is the more susceptible time for interference activity to occur, he points out.
Given the window in which malicious cyber activity could still occur, security experts urge voters to remain patient, seek news in trusted sources, and keep in mind that technical glitches occur – not every disruption might be related to a cyberattack. Voters should keep in mind how voting has been affected by the pandemic and there may not be a final result for days to come.
