Professor Hoke Quoted in HuffPo Article on Russian Hacking

Retired Cleveland-Marshall College of Law Professor and Co-Founder of the Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection, Candice Hoke, was recently quoted in a story published on Huffington Post entitled “States Accuse DHS of Giving Them Bad Information About Russian Hacking.”  According to Professor Hoke, “[t]he key point here is that hackers are quite knowledgeable about network configuration blunders that allow access to a sought system or resource — like election operations — via a less valuable asset that is internet facing or less well defended,” and “[u]nquestionably, hackers will attempt to gain access to election and other mission critical governmental systems through systems having no connection to elections. They often are simply exploring to see what’s possible, what network architecture mistakes can be exploited.”
