Protecting the vote…
When cybersecurity expert Jake Braun challenged hackers at DEFCON, the largest hacking conference in the world, to breach the security of an American voting machine, a hacker in Europe conquered the task in less than two minutes. From hacking into voting machines to more mundane, but no less serious problems, America’s democracy faces unprecedented tests from within and without.
In Democracy in Danger, Braun, a veteran of three presidential campaigns and former White House Liaison to the Department of Homeland Security, reveals what the national security apparatus, local election administrators, and political parties have gotten wrong about election security. He also explains what America needs to do to protect the ballot box in 2020 and beyond.
