Joshua Geltzer wrote with Charles Kupchan for the Washington Post's "DemocracyPost" section on how the U.S. can respond to Russian hacking:

To counter this threat, our best guide isn’t Cold War-like containment. Instead, we should model our efforts on our largely successful approach to combating terrorists — who also seek to weaken democracy from within. Washington should draw on its fight against al-Qaeda and the Islamic State to develop a legal and policy framework for thwarting foreign interference, further punishing Russia and educating the U.S. public to reduce its vulnerability to foreign manipulation.
