Where the Would-Be Vice Presidents Stand on Cybersecurity (Engadget)


Aside from sound bites on Russia and hacking, where Clinton and Trump stand on cybersecurity issues is generally unclear. In fact, they’ve devoted little time to this crucial and urgent subject. Which is weird in light of the epic amount of hacking shenanigans this presidential race has compelled us to endure.

When it comes to cybersecurity, neither Clinton nor Trump has a position, a statement, a plan or a section in their “Issues” sections of their campaign websites. Only Clinton’s website mentions it — in passing: once on China’s accountability to the U.S., and then again in a little line stating she will work to promote “cybersecurity at home and abroad.”
