Voters cast ballots at the the Topeka Civic Theatre in Topeka, Kansas, Nov. 6, 2018. Military cyberofficials are developing information warfare tactics that could be deployed against senior Russian officials and oligarchs if Moscow tries to interfere in the 2020 U.S. elections through hacking election systems

WASHINGTON – Military cyberofficials are developing information warfare tactics that could be deployed against senior Russian officials and oligarchs if Moscow tries to interfere in the 2020 U.S. elections through hacking voting systems or sowing widespread discord, according to current and former U.S. officials.

One option being explored by U.S. Cyber Command would target senior leadership and Russian elites, though likely not President Vladimir Putin, which would be considered too provocative, said the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the issue's sensitivity. The idea would be to show that the target's sensitive, personal data could be hit if the interference did not stop, though officials declined to be more specific.
