Will Democrats and Donald Trump share all campaign cyberthreat intel in 2020?
“Imagine this: Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign and, let’s say, Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign working together closely on cyber threat and incident intelligence sharing. Every sensitive piece of information and forensics on hacking attempts is passed between the two opposing organizations. Given what we know about the 2016 presidential campaign, the scenario seems like a long shot. However, it’s potentially closer to reality than most would think. It’s one possible outcome of a newly launched project promoting an Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) among U.S. political campaigns. The overall project, Defending Digital Democracy, launched in July at Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs. This month, 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook and 2008 Mitt Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades announced the ISAO as the DDD’s first priority.”
