Increasingly, sensitive and proprietary data is often stored in the cloud or within emails that are protected by passwords. Companies are now vulnerable to increased rates of attacks by hackers, competitors, and former employees who want to gain access to profits and company secrets.

The application of the act was expanded to cover any computer in the internet world during this millennial age. Our law firm is extensively experienced in offering the right representation plaintiffs in the CFAA litigations. Our clients, in most cases, are businessmen who own email networks, individual computers, and servers that were hacked by former employees and competitors.

However, such businesses also have the capability to maintain a lawsuit that is aside from any prosecutorial decision. For you to hold a CFAA claim maintained, the plaintiff must prove that the defendant accessed the computer without authorization knowingly. With such respect to the non-governmental computers, such access must have caused a loss of at least $5,000 as damages, or it must have been performed with the intention of defrauding as well as resulting in obtaining valuable information or trade secrets.
