SMA's Greg Treverton and Alicia Chen analyze what happened during the 2016 US election
IRVINE, California, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "What are now called 'hybrid threats' are not new. Nations, and sometimes non-national groups, long have employed a variety of means short of war, simultaneously, to influence others. What is new is the virtual realm—cyber attacks to ferret out, then strategically release, discrediting information, and social media, to lower the entry cost for massive propaganda campaigns. Both were on vivid display in the Russian intervention in the 2016 US presidential election, which also suggested some limits and possible counters."
In this white paper, SMA's Greg Treverton, assisted by Alicia Chen, analyze how the Russians attempted to influence our elections, and comment on what we can do to minimize the effect of their interference in the future.
