By Jordan Graham | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: October 15, 2018 at 6:49 pm | UPDATED: October 15, 2018 at 6:49 pm Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel will visit Orange County on Wednesday to support the re-election bid of 30-year incumbent Rep.

The Republican National Committee chair taunted Democrats over the snafu. And some critics argued the sudden about-face raised concerns about the committee's preparedness going into the midterms. But digital security experts say the episode should actually inspire confidence in the DNC's cyberdefenses ahead of November. The committee and its cybersecurity contractors deserved praise, these experts said, for … [Read more...] about The Cybersecurity 202: Security pros defend Democratic National Committee’s handling of hacking false alarm
