Gabe Holloway, Laurie Glapa to Present on CFAA at MCCA Global Tec Forum
Starting at 3:45 p.m. June 19 Gabe and Laurie will participate in the How to Get Sued Under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA): Spotting Trends in 30 Years of CFAA Data" panel discussion.
The CFAA is the primary piece of U.S. federal legislation on cybercrime. It’s 30 years old and almost universally considered unclear, overbroad, and a poor fit for the kind of crimes it aims to deter. This is a real problem for attorneys and information security professionals as they often struggle to interpret the law, and practical guidance on CFAA legal risk can be difficult to find.
This panel has conducted original research in this field over the last 18 months. There are hundreds of hours of original research under pinning this detailed presentation, which will discuss: what CFAA enforcement looks like in practice; statistics regarding CFAA risk and “hacking”; and the likelihood of a given CFAA action being a criminal prosecution rather than a civil suit. Inferences drawn from these findings are relevant to infosec practitioners and lawyers alike as they think about CFAA risk issues.
