Network Security at the RNC

It seems like you just can’t turn on the news this week without hearing about the Republican National Convention occurring from July 18th to the 21st.

With such heavy traffic focused in on the event, it’s no wonder that extra-preventative cybersecurity measures are being taken to ensure that the event runs smoothly.

RNC and Security

Tonight, as Donald Trump is expected to formally accept the Republican nomination, it seems as if the entire world will be watching. This includes 10,000 devices connected to the physical RNC network, as well as millions streaming from devices elsewhere. As of now, there has been no suspected threat of any kind, although unusual traffic has been detected from Russia and Asia.

Vince Cristler is the CEO of security contractor Dark Cubed, which utilizes a network-sharing technology to allow companies to communicate potential security threats back and forth. For him, this means sitting in front of a monitor and watching the network data tick by.

So what exactly are these threats that are being watched for?

Well, there’s malware, which is particularly dangerous for individual devices. However, a higher threat is posed from malicious code that could scan the network for potential infiltration points.

RNC Security Command Center

Several blocks away from the RNC arena lies the command center, where experts are constantly moving back and forth to monitor the situation.

Security analysts are making the most of the ability to detect each and every device’s bandwidth activity. If something were to be noted as suspicious, they would be able to relocate it to a more isolated access point. And if a true issue were to arise, that device could be banned blocked from the RNC altogether.

There’s no telling what will happen at tonight’s big event. However, one thing is certain: security experts have prepared themselves for anything.
