This recently formed Substantive Law Committee focused on Cyber Crime, finds its rationale from the great interest (and concern) this issue generates both in the US and throughout the world. The US National Security Agency has reported that there has been a seventeen-fold increase in computer attacks on American infrastructure between 2009 and 2013, with many of those attacks being initiated by criminal gangs, hackers, and other nations. Pending legislation which can assist Government in the detection, prevention, and prosecution of cyber crimes, we hope this Committee will be able to at least provide perspective to the US and other Governments on the global impact of a hot issue, which affects not only individuals, corporations and Governments, but on the legal community as a whole.
The Committee will study and play a thought leadership role on cybercrime, not only as it relates to attacks on critical infrastructure, but also the use of social media and technology as key components of criminal prosecutions and sometimes serving as the instrumentality used to commit the offense itself. We have forensic experts on the Committee, as well as leading Criminal lawyers. Other topics that are proposed to be considered include the application of traditional discovery and evidentiary rules (e.g. authentication, relevance, and admissibility) to electronically-generated and stored information.
We hope the Cyber Crime Committee will become a trusted and authoritative resource on cybercrime issues for the legal and legislative communities. We also hope that we will play a role, globally, in the legislative efforts to address crimes involving the use of technology and/or the admissibility of electronic evidence.
This Committee will also foster a dialogue with other ITechLaw Committees, as well as the broader legal community, on matters of common interest.
