Our phishing expert witnesses have many years of experience in the computer science industry with expertise in computer fraud and the identification of security problems. Phishing is a type of computer fraud where the attacker attempts to learn information about a website user like his or her log-in credentials or account information by purporting to be a reputable source in an email, instant message (IM) or other type of communication. Phishing occurs when a victim receives a message that looks to have been sent by a known contact or organization. However, an attachment or link in the message has the ability to install malware on the user’s device or direct them to a malicious website designed to get them to reveal personal and financial information, such as passwords, account IDs, or credit card numbers.
These professionals work at identifying trends in fraud and computing before they impact the general public and in developing and testing countermeasures. They work in applied security, including authentication, click-fraud, mobile malware detection, and the development of metrics to detect new types of fraud. They have served as testifying expert witnesses in cases of patent litigation, such as those involving digital rights management, hardware-based security, and mobile security and secure messaging.
