A common topic of political commentary in recent weeks—indeed, ever since the election of President Trump—has been the threat that foreign hacking poses to our democracy.  Notably, there have been substantial fears, evidenced by leaders within the intelligence community at home and abroad, that Russia and perhaps others tried to sway the election.  The threat has not just been here in the US, either.  The election of President Macron, too, was mired in the threat of Russian cyber-hacking.
