I see this as a reflection of the candidates ability to find and listen to experts. I don't expect a candidate to understand how to do tech "right" - I'm in the industry and still get half of it wrong! However, when you're running a multi million dollar campaign you can afford to bring in experts to set this stuff up and audit your practices. In fact, I assume these candidates are already doing this and that if they are still not following some basic best practices it's because they are actively ignoring the experts they brought on to help them. That's what worries me. If they can't find or listen to these people now, what makes me think they'll be able to in office? (Related: "The internet is not a big truck...")
