Senate Intelligence Committee releases report on Russian election influence ops.
It's the first of several projected volumes. The contents were unsurprising, but they do summarize a great deal of what's come to be known about Russian influence operations: it was national in scope, sophisticated in execution, and aimed at exploiting social and political fissures in US civil society with a view to exciting mistrust and calling the legitimacy of institutions into doubt.
The Election Infrastructure Coordinating Council offered the following summary of where election protection stands: "The 2018 midterm elections saw unprecedented levels of coordination between all levels of government and the private sector election companies, and the 2020 election will improve on that effort. Currently, all 50 states are members of the Election Infrastructure Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EI-ISAC), along with more than 1,800 local jurisdictions, and fourteen private sector companies making it the fastest growing ISAC in history. Additionally, all 50 states, two territories, and 96 localities have intrusion detection systems, known as Albert sensors, on their networks, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is providing remote vulnerability scanning and risk assessments upon request to government and private sector entities."
