How would we vet someone who claims to be an expert in cyber security, specifically, hacker prevention? Seems to me, the only reliable expert would be a hacker himself, and how would he prove it? For all we know, the only hackers we do catch are the clumsy amateurs!

I suggest we regard with suspicion any claim to expertise. The guy who says Hillary's security is super-cool secure, and the guy who swears its moldy cheese might both be telling the truth, so far as they know. Its not that anybody's lying, its that everybody is guessing.
