While no one wants any foreign entity to interfere with our political process, there is more to be concerned about than just data breaches. Even though Russian hackers may have been the culprits for distributing emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign, hackers didn’t compose the messages that provided a glimpse into Democratic thinking. The hacking also exposed that the Clinton campaign’s careless use of email and devices was more than just bad choices — it was potentially giving foreign actors access to sensitive information and possibly compromising our national security. It also demonstrated that President Barack Obama was naive in dealing with world leaders and thought taking a passive approach to foreign relations was just as effective as maintaining strong cyber and natural borders. I welcome the change that is coming.
