Changes are most certainly going to be made to cybersecurity. The election itself was tarnished with security issues that created at the very least tension, and at its pinnacle, a kind of hysteria. A string of email attacks that ensnared DNC leaders and even Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager revealed the impact that cyberwarfare can have on a national election.
