Election Hacking Is No Longer Theoretical: Russians Are Pwning Our Votes

Posted on in Presentations

Facebook is not to blame for nearly every country’s lack of guidance, regulation or legal precedent on how to secure their sovereignty from election meddling and hacking. This talk will show how nation-state adversaries are targeting election systems, election system supply chains, regional populations, elected officials and the democratic state.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand the history of election hacking and how the times are changing.
2: Learn the multiple methods in which elections are being targeted and compromised.
3: Understand what a protection framework must include to protect democratic elections.

An cursory knowledge of red teaming tactics and the complex nature of election systems would be useful.
