Black Hat Cybersecurity Leaders Prefer Clinton Compared to Trump

Introduction

This article was posted on Thursday, 23:00, UTC.

If anyone has learned the importance of cybersecurity, it’s Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, according to the founder of Black Hat, a conference for the best of the cybersecurity world.

Despite the fact that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic party have been hacked, cybersecurity leaders are in favor of Clinton as the next president of the United States, according to a report from NPR.

This year saw the 19th Black Hat conference in Sin City, which typically attracts around 11,000 hackers from across the globe, intent on fixing cybersecurity problems for the future. Their aim is to demonstrate the hacks they can perform in a bid to raise awareness of how vulnerable a system can be.

Jeff Moss, the founder of Black Hat, said in a recent interview with NPR that he would be voting for Hillary Clinton in the November election rather than Donald Trump.

He said:

If Hillary is sort of, almost status quo, and the devil we know, versus complete crazy unknown. I’m not willing to risk the country on the complete crazy unknown.

According to Moss, Trump has had plenty of opportunities to demonstrate his policy positions. Instead, Trump is reported to have called Russia to hack Clinton.

Interestingly, though, it was only on July 26 that President Barak Obama signed the President Policy Directive (PPD) in a bid to outline a response plan when the U.S. is subjected to cyberattacks.

Ironically, however, the policy didn’t receive much attention because of Hillary Clinton’s Democratic nomination and the Democratic National Convention (DNC).

Of course, while the Black Hat attendees may be in favor of Clinton as the next president they still want to know what her policies are in more detail when it comes to cybersecurity.

While this issue needs to be addressed, Moss notes that as she was a target of cybersecurity, she should understand how important it is particularly at a time when hacks are occurring more frequently.
