Is the US any better prepared today than we were one year ago to resist foreign intervention in our next presidential election?
The clock is ticking, and it'll happen again unless we prepare. #FairElections
2/ There appear to be two main avenues requiring active defenses: #cybersecurity / hacking, and disinformation / #FakeNews
3/ From my vantage, governments who conduct elections, and corporations who curate #SocialMedia & news are treading water. The next Presidential election is 3 years away, and we've let one year slip away. #FairElections
4/ One year in, there should be a plan to prevent foreign intervention in our elections. Congress should be holding hearings, asking DHS, FBI, NSA, CIA what they are doing to make progress against the plan.
5/ Many states and counties were targeted and probed. The federal government should be coordinating a technical response: we can't expect local government to defend themselves against Nation States.
6/ There needs to be a concerted effort among federal, state & local governments to adopt standards that enable testing, sensing, and rapid response to foreign hijinks. #CyberAware #FairElections
7/ Ensuring that we have #FairElections in 2020 must be a priority for Congress & the Executive Branch. If we don't act with haste, we're jeopardizing 241 years of our democracy, & serving as a beacon for others. #ShameOnUS
