Summary : This presentation reviews the important
prosecutions, precedents and legal opinions of the last year that affect
internet and computer security. We will discuss the differences between
legal decisions from criminal cases and civil lawsuits and what that
means to the security professional. Additionally, we look at topics such
as: email retention and discovery; Hewlett-Packard; active response;
nondisclosure and non-competition agreements; identity theft and
notification issues; legal aspects of emerging technologies; lawsuits
involving IT corporations (Google, Yahoo, Apple, Microsoft); and of
course, the NSA surveillance litigation. As always, this presentation is
strongly audience driven and it quickly becomes an open forum for
questions and debate.
