Journalists and camera crews from the Hearst Television National Investigative Unit were the only members of the media allowed to watch as the Black Team -- a team of agents and officers from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Secret Service, several state police agencies and local law enforcement -- squared off against the Red Team, comprised of experts from Harvard University, Boston University, Nichols College and the private firm Cybereason, which pretended to be hackers targeting Election Day.
