Hacking Back: Legitimate Corporate Security or Risky Business?

Event Description


Deadline to Register: November 10, 2013
Register now by clicking on the "Register" button at the top of this page

Hack back or active defense, depending on how one defines each —and everything in between— consists of activities that are both lawful and unlawful, and which has been the recent subject of intense scrutiny, debate, and proposed legislation.  Novel legal theories have been advanced in support of it, but little case law exists to provide guidance in the absence of clear legislative intent. Some experts advocate back hacking, and many firms have resorted to it covertly. This CLE will explore some of these theories, but also highlight the business and professional risks associated with deceptive practices that may implicate the Rules of Prof'l Conduct, as well as misattribution, escalation, regulatory scrutiny, and civil or criminal exposures.

The Computer & Technology Law Section Council will meet at 11:30 a.m., follow by lunch and the CLE at Noon.
