  • Cybersecurity is crucial in election years, as seen in past events like the hacking of Clinton’s emails.
  • Candidates need to have clear and comprehensive cybersecurity strategies to address digital threats.

As election season heats up, the critical role of cybersecurity in shaping the outcome of elections becomes increasingly evident. The hacking and distribution of Hillary Clinton’s private emails in 2016 underscore the impact of cybersecurity on political campaigns. Candidates are now expected to not only focus on their visions for the future but also on their readiness and policies regarding cybersecurity. In our digital age, cybersecurity agendas should be as crucial as policies on other key issues like the economy and defense.

The involvement of experts such as technologists, cybersecurity professionals, and AI specialists is essential in shaping realistic and forward-thinking cybersecurity policies. Candidates should be able to answer important questions regarding their cybersecurity agendas, government agency hacks, and the security of their own campaigns. Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a significant role in the next generation of cybersecurity solutions, and candidates need to explore leveraging AI to enhance national cyber defenses.

Candidates must also address the vulnerability of cyber borders and articulate plans for protecting digital infrastructure, data, and critical systems. As the election approaches, voters and technologists alike should demand clear and in-depth cybersecurity policies from prospective leaders to ensure the security and resilience of the nation in the digital age.
