Unmasking the Anonymous Hacker: What to Do if Your Client's Data Security Is Breached by an Anonymous Hacker

Friday, January 24, 2014 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This roundtable addresses what to do when an anonymous hacker or other defendant uses the anonymity of the internet to damage your client, whether to propagate damaging information a simple libel or through the theft and disclosure of valuable trade secrets.

There is unfortunately no simple or easy solution to this problem.  An attorney must try to assemble a team of legal and non-legal professionals as well as pursue the assistance of law enforcement.

This panel therefore combines a civil trial attorney, Michael Thad Allen of Todd & Weld, LLP, the Assistant District Attorney in charge of Middlesex County’s Cyber Protection Program, David Solet, and the Managing Director of Boston Office the global computer forensics firm Stroz Freidberg, Kent Sinclair, each of whom will explain their role in the investigation and prosecution of a case against anonymous hackers.

Attendees will be provided, among other things, with forms for filing a John Doe lawsuit to unmask an anonymous hacker as well as information about what to expect from different avenues of a legal investigation into an anonymous defendant.
