Russian Interference in 2016 Election Allowed for Better Information Sharing

February 24, 2020


Two top government cybersecurity officials — Director of DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Chris Krebs, and Anne Neuberger, the director of the NSA’s Cybersecurity Directorate — said Monday that information sharing and collaboration on cybersecurity issues has dramatically improved in recent years.
“Comparing where we were in 2016 starting from scratch we’ve come miles … light years from where we were in 2016. In the defense of the 2016 presidential election there were not established mechanisms for working with our state and local partners,” Krebs said.
