How I would Have Done It: Practical Election Hacking

[90 minute shared session] For much of the past year we have been talking about election-related hacking and the various alleged attempts by Russian-affiliated groups to influence the 2016 Presidential election and the 2017 French Presidential Election. The reality is, those attempts largely didn’t influence many votes. This talk will focus on methods of how a successful influential operation and election “hacking” campaign would operate and how the outcome could be affected by foreign (or covert domestic) parties.
John will speak alongside John Bumgarner in a 90 minute session on election hacking and nation state disinformation and influence.
