The Democrat Party is requiring states to give caucus goers a "virtual caucus" option where they can join the process without physically being at a caucus location.

And according to Bloomberg, a dry run of this virtual caucus setup in Iowa and Nevada was hacked. At least the hacker or pentester was invited:

"At a closed-door session of the Rules and By-Laws Committee on Thursday, the DNC told the panel that experts convened by the party were able to hack into a conference call among the committee, the Iowa Democratic Party and Nevada Democratic Party, raising concerns about teleconferencing for virtual caucuses, according to three people who were at the meeting."

Iowa and Nevada are building a teleconference system for 2020, and Alaska plans a phone and web-based operation, with Democrats in other states working on their plans.

So far it seems like nothing is more secure than meeting in the flesh.
