This presentation will focus on recent research and a forthcoming edited volume (Cambridge University Press, 2024) on the topic, which investigates attacks on both the voting processes as well as on the broader informational environment within which voting takes place around the world. Case studies and meta-analyses are featured to better understand cyber-enabled threats to election infrastructure, along with efforts to manage misinformation and disinformation around the world.
