Firewalls Expert Witnesses
Firewall expert witness candidates typically have an advanced degree and extensive experience in computer science, software engineering, electrical engineering, computer networking, wireless communication, and/or information technology. An expert witness needs to not only have expertise, but must also possess the ability to explain technology to lay people, such as a judge and jury.
Involving computer hardware or software, a firewall is basically a network security system that monitors and controls network traffic. The intent of a firewall is to prevent unauthorized access and to help prevent malicious activity. Firewalls have become increasingly important with the climb in online banking and mobile device payments.
Often, matters requiring firewalls expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, software copyright, and trade secret disputes. A computer forensics expert can investigate to determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft. Litigation support by a firewalls expert witness could include software analysis, a prior art search, arbitration, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony, and courtroom testimony.
