Your Call: Hacking the Election

Nov 14, 2016

 

On the November 14th edition of Your Call, we look at how hacking affected the 2016 Presidential campaign  

Emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign shed a negative light on her and her people. The Russian government may have been involved in hacking the Democratic National Committee, revealing their favoritism in choosing Clinton over Bernie Sanders. These incidents are happening more and more frequently and with the hackers always staying one step ahead of the security experts, we have to ask--Is this the new normal, and if so, how will political campaigns and government agencies adjust their strategies?  It's Your Call, with Renee Kemp, and you.
