The Global Cyber Alliance conducted an analysis last week showing that most of the 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidates have not taken the necessary steps to secure their email systems. The analysis also reported that only four of the then-14 Democratic candidates’ websites were using a security protocol to ensure emails sent from a campaign address were actually from the campaign.
