New DOJ CFAA Policy for Security Researchers (virtual)

Link visible for attendees

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has announced a new policy regarding the overbroad and vague Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, under which it will not bring CFAA prosecutions against those engaged “solely” in “good faith” security research. In the past, the threat of prosecution has been used to deter responsible security research, sparing powerful entities from potential scrutiny while making their systems less safe.

Join us to learn more about the new policy, whether it could be reversed in the future, and if it really goes far enough.

Our speaker will be EFF's Senior Staff Attorney Andrew Crocker. Please join us for a very informative evening.
