Today’s Must Read: “Exclusive: Read the Previously Undisclosed Plan to Counter Russian Hacking on Election Day”

Quite a wow from Time:

President Obama’s White House quietly produced a plan in October to counter a possible Election Day cyber attack that included extraordinary measures like sending armed federal law enforcement agents to polling places, mobilizing components of the military and launching counter-propaganda efforts.

The 15-page plan, a copy of which was obtained by TIME, stipulates that “in almost all potential cases of malicious cyber activity impacting election infrastructure, state, local, tribal, and territorial governments” would have primary jurisdiction to respond.

 But in the case of a “signifcant incident” the White House had several “enhanced procedures” it was prepared to take.
