Smells Like Teen Hackers: The Secret Origin Story of American Cybersecurity (03/30/2021)

Program Number: 3178 Presenter: David Kalat

This webinar explores how fictional scares and even more worrisome “stranger than fiction” scares in 1983 led to the enactment of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFA) and the Computer Security Act of 1987. The historical framing is used to explain why certain limitations or peculiar features of these laws were enacted. This discussion also examines criticisms of these computer security laws by civil libertarians and privacy advocates, and ways in which the laws have been challenged and amended to address those critiques. In many ways, the secret origin story of American cybersecurity begins in 1983, when the very idea of computer crimes seemed to many like science fiction. Personal computers were still a novelty, and the only users of the Internet were government scientists. But U.S. defense analysts foresaw risks from hostile governments like Russia, as well as terrorists and criminals, not to mention mischief from garden variety hackers. Their

In the Spotlight: Effective Strategies to Avoid Ethics Violations When Practicing Virtually (04/07/2021)

Program Number: 3176 Presenter: Francine Friedman Griesing, Esq.

The good old days when we worked in person, used real documents, and appeared in person for depositions, meetings and court are in the past. The recent changes due to Covid-19 and the necessity of working remotely have further revolutionized the legal profession. Technology makes it easier to generate documents and electronic communications, increased the use of remote operations, and enabled us to participate in legal proceedings from a personal device rather than in person. Due to recent events, the legal profession has been forced to pivot to rely on remote proceedings. Whether we are attending meetings, conducting depositions, interviewing witnesses, arguing before judicial officers or mediating a dispute, we are likely doing it over a virtual platform. Even after we resume primarily in person practice, the cost savings and ease of practicing remotely will likely keep these processes in place. In this program, we will discuss effective ways to

Program Number: 3168 Presenter: Glynna K. Christian, Esq., Jeffrey R. Seul, Esq.

What is “Authorized Access” and How Do Employers Deal with Misuse of Access Credentials Post-VanBuren vs United States (02/03/2021)

Program Number: 3122 Presenter: Michelle A. Schaap, Esq.

As this summary is being written on December 1, 2020, the United States Supreme Court is considering the fate of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (“CFAA”) in Van Buren v. United States. CFAA had been used by employers in certain circuit courts successfully to hold employees accountable for misuse and/or misappropriation of employers’ data to which the employees were otherwise authorized to access in the course of their employment. At the time this program is presented, we expect the Court will have rendered its ruling in Van Buren. Regardless of the fate of the CFAA, employers can and should employ other means, statutorily, contractually, and technologically, to protect their trade secrets and other confidential and proprietary information from misuse, exfiltration and alteration. Moreover, for employers who are attorneys, they are ethically required to not only keep client information confidential, but to stay abreast technology that may facilitate the protection of

To Embed, or Not to Embed, that is the Question (01/22/2021)

Program Number: 3114 Presenter: Michael D. Hobbs, Jr. Esq., Shaleen J. Patel, Esq.

A discussion on an increasingly tumultuous area of on-line copyright law. The discussion focuses on a trend where courts are increasingly allowing cases to proceed on the merits in instances of media publishers embedding, a practice of displaying content from one platform into another without actually hosting the underlying content. For years, such a practice seemed safe under the Ninth Circuit’s “server test.” However, districts in other circuits are rejecting that the server test is settled law and questioning the legality of embedding. As social media makes embedding content a more available feature, this broadcast discusses the risks of continuing to embed content without first acquiring permission and possible alternatives.
