Cybersecurity Task Force raised again at Trump-Putin summit

Following the statement of the US Deputy Assistant Secretary for Cyber and International Communications and Information Policy that the US can strike a deal on norms for government behavior in cyberspace with China and Russia at the UN, the Trump-Putin summit again brought up the idea of a joint Russian-American working group or task force which would protect future elections from hackers. The idea of a joint task force, criticised by experts, was first brought up in July 2017 by President Trump, and has resurfaced at the Helsinki summit where President Putin suggested that US and Russia work together to examine the evidence that Russia had meddled in the US presidential election. President Putin once again denied Russia meddled in the election, calling the accusations an utter nonsense.
