McAfee Fellow, Jonathan King, is a leading authority on cybersecurity threats. He has been warning about election hacking since before the 2016 Presidential election. Now with the 2020 election looming, he outlines why US election systems are vulnerable and how they are susceptible to information warfare using the Deep Fakes technology and other disinformation tactics to raise or suppress voting in different swing counties and states. We must protect our systems from malicious actors seeking to influence voter choices, sow discord, and undermine confidence in our system of government. Learn how to protect our fundamental American right to vote freely.
