Information security expert witnesses may have varying technical backgrounds, making it imperative that the retained expert witness has the experience matching the particular details of your specific case. Information security expert consulting may be sought out for cases involving information that has been stored in either a physical or electronic system, since the type of security would differ depending on the specific form of storage.
Due to businesses’ increasing involvement with technology, information security expert witnesses often have experience with computer information management systems. Such systems may operate via Internet technology, encryption systems, cloud computing, different types of security-based software, and other forms of technology utilized for the purpose of cyber security. Breaches in security may result in fraud and various forms of identity theft, resulting in cause for a lawsuit if the situation occurred due to poor levels of information security regarding the management system in question.
Information security expert witnesses often have experience with Internet protocols designed to protect online privacy. In addition to claims resulting from lapses in online security, a lawsuit may concern the information security system in relation to patent laws, since such systems may be susceptible to copyright infringement, as would be the case with new and developing technology.
