    Cyber attacks on campaigns and elections are “wider and more pervasive” in 2022, according to a senior official at the US Department of Homeland Security, who will be one of the speakers tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon. Why is this happening? And why are more and more countries attacking U.S. campaigns?
