Did you miss the Election Interference & Data Breaches Webinar with LMG Security, or did you simply just want to watch it again?
Co-hosted with LMG Security and featuring their CEO Sherri Davidoff, NCC teamed up with LMG security on 10/14/20 for the Election Interference & Data Breaches Webinar. Leaked data has the potential to change the course of elections– especially when it is deliberately stolen, culled and weaponized. In the last U.S. presidential election, stolen data routinely plastered the headlines, forever altering the political landscape and possibly the course of history. There is evidence that hackers-for-hire have targeted current election candidates as well.
For all political parties, the fairness and legitimacy of U.S. elections is a fundamental concern. In this fast-paced talk, we delved into the strategies and tactics that hackers have successfully used to break into election-related organizations, using the DNC and the Clinton campaign as case studies. We discussd the rise of Wikileaks and the megaleaks infrastructure, and show how data exposure evolved into sophisticated information distribution machines. Finally, we highlighted the known 2020 breach attempts, and provide important tips for recognizing and protecting our elections against information warfare.
