"Staying Out of Prison: A Cyber Law How-to Guide," presented by Andrew Levchuk.
The presentation will include an overview of the most important statutes for computer crime investigations and the key cases decided under them, including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Stored Communications Act, the Wiretap Act, and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.    We will examine the scope and limits of federal and state jurisdiction over computer crimes, as well as the common international issues that arise in significant computer crime investigations.   We will use recent cases -- such as the prosecution of  Aaron Swartz  -- as working examples.

We will also touch upon the preservation and use electronic and computer-based evidence, and issues arising under Article 14 of the Massachusetts Constitution and the Fourth Amendment from the seizure and search of such evidence, including the permissible scope of searches and the search of stored communications.

Speaker Background
Before joining Bulkley Richardson, Andrew Levchuk spent most of his career with the U.S. Department of Justice.  This included serving as Senior Counsel in the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, where he assisted in the prosecution of computer intrusions and other high-tech crimes.  He also served on the U.S. delegation to the G8 High-tech Crime Subgroup, and participated in joint-training for the G8-sponsored 24/7 network of law enforcement contacts for computer crime investigations.

His interest in computer crime and electronic evidence arose naturally from his undergraduate study of mathematics at the University of Chicago.  Before law school he taught mathematics at Phillips Academy.  Mr. Levchuk recently received his CISSP and GISP certifications.

    The talk on cyber law was interesting and revealed how the laws both stand alone and go together. Nice mini tech talk to start the night, too.

    Is there an address on Main Street I can use for my GPS? Last month I used the Microsoft address and it sent me to purgatory.
