A sweeping overhaul of America’s electoral infrastructure is needed in order to prevent foreign interference as the 2020 elections loom, a group of security researchers has concluded.
Former Facebook chief security officer Nick Stamos – who witnessed the sinister social media campaign orchestrated by Russian agents against America – and his colleagues at Stanford University’s Cyber Policy Center published a 108-page report that recommends a wide range of actions to prevent a repeat of what took place in the lead-up to the 2016 US presidential election, including better coordination between government agencies and social media organizations.
The report, which is called “Securing Our Cyber Future: Innovative Approaches to Digital Threats,” can be read in full here. It details a range of recommendations, including:
Some of the Stanford report’s proposals are already in the process of being enacted by tech companies or have been proposed by lawmakers in Washington, DC.
Another issue the report calls out is the lack of access to data related to disinformation campaigns.
