Exploring 2020 Presidential Candidates' Email and Web Security
Eric Smith and Abby Clobridge write for FireOak Strategies, “With the DNC [Democratic National Committee] email hack in 2016, cybersecurity played a major role in the outcome of our last presidential election. Our team of researchers was curious: what’s changed since 2016? What’s the state of email and website security for the 2020 presidential candidates? In short, have stronger security protections been put in place since 2016 or has nothing changed?”
Smith and Clobridge attempted to answer these questions by examining publicly available data. They note, “We recognize that the five areas we examined don’t represent a complete assessment of the cybersecurity posture of the candidates’ campaigns. … However, we do think it sheds light on whether the candidates are taking full advantage of a set of freely-available security protocols that are designed to secure their websites and email platforms.”
