What kind of threats do you think we'll see in the 2020 elections?

If I'm an American citizen, I'm feeling very comfortable. No one's going to change the tallies of the elections directly. Let's put it this way: Worst-case scenario, somebody does attack the election infrastructure directly, we're going to have a 100 percent packet recall. We're going to see it happen. We'll probably have attribution. We'll know who it is. And quite frankly, that's going to be the last tool that a foreign entity would use.

What's more frustrating in the elections now is what we call influence operations. In 2016, my company found over 150 fake Facebook [pages]. We just happened to have someone analyze them, and they came to me—I didn't even know what to do with the information at the time. I was uncertain because somebody came to me and said, ‘We believe this is a Russian intelligence operation to influence the election.’ A lot of the news was fake. A lot of it was, 'Let's get the 5 percent of the right inflamed; let's get the 5 percent on the left inflamed,' and using anonymous media that everybody gets the news from. I think it's the influence operations that we saw in 2016. We found Iranian ones in 2018. That made the press, where Google, Facebook and Twitter did take all those [pages] and fake sites down. … I would be more concerned about how all of us are being influenced by people that are anonymous. Quite frankly, they could be representing the agenda of foreign nations. And that will happen, by the way, so we have to be careful that, in general, an anonymous source of information should be trusted about as much as spray paint [on a wall] at a rest area off of Route 95. We shouldn't necessarily give credibility to anonymity.
