Computer networking expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience and expertise in software engineering, electrical engineering, network architecture, computer science, information technology, and/or computer security. A computer networking expert witness needs to not only have the appropriate substantive expertise, but must also possess the ability to explain electronic evidence and technology to a judge and jurors. The lead attorney may request a technologist with previous expert witness testimony experience, but this is not always a requirement.
A network involves the exchange of data between any number of devices. This information and data is governed by standardized networking protocols and specifications. A computer network allows sharing of network and computing resources, such as a shared printer or storage device. Distributed computing uses computing resources across a network to accomplish tasks.
A computer networking expert witness could be engaged to provide expert witness services for intellectual property matters, such as a patent infringement litigation or a trade secret dispute. A forensic expert has experience reverse engineering components to prove (or disprove) intellectual property infringement or theft. A computer networking specialist could also be called in on legal matters to consult on technical issues, which could require computer forensics. Computer networking expert witnesses also opine on cases involving computer fraud, cybersecurity, and computer crime. In addition, lead counsel may seek a computer networks expert for pre-litigation consulting work. Expert witness services by a computer networking expert can include reverse engineering, depositions, expert testimony, expert report preparation, forensic analysis, and related consulting activities. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness experience is often a requirement.
