Fear Of Russian Hacking Pushes Netherlands To Paper Election Ballots

As Europe and the world closely watches parliamentary elections in the Netherlands, many political and cyber experts believe Russia is hacking elections across Europe and in the U.S.

We talk about the results of Wednesday's poll and the threat of election cyber-hacking across the world with Hugo Jonker, assistant professor of security and privacy at the School of Computer Science of the Open University of the Netherlands. He is also a visiting researcher at the Digital Security group of the Radboud University Nijmegen.
