Can the next ELECTIONS be HACKED?YES YES да да да
Computers belonging to important people in electoral campaigns are still exposed, and lack secure cyber security. Consider following-
C4ISR stands for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance. C4ISR can be extended to political campaigns. The C4ISR system is a network of networks is vulnerable to similar attacks called cyber attacks
fake news- organic and paid ads to discredit using social media
spear phishing-the fraudulent practice of sending emails ostensibly from a known or trusted sender in order to induce targeted individuals to reveal confidential information. This can be directed on campaign workers
An advanced persistent threat (APT)-a prolonged and targeted cyberattack in which an intruder gains access to a network and remains undetected for an extended period of time. The intention of an APT attack is usually to monitor network activity and steal data rather than to cause damage to the network or organization. This can and was be directed at party and candidate networks
Unless a national cyber security force extends to election commission to protect cyber attacks during an electoral cycle is established democracy will continue to be hostage to the hardest hackers.
