An information systems expert witness typically has an advanced degree, extensive experience, and expertise in computer science, information technology, and/or software engineering. An expert witness chosen may be a member of an industry organization such as the IEEE, the Association for Information Systems (AIS), or the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA).
An information systems expert witness could provide expertise in intellectual property matters such as a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secret dispute. It could be a patent infringement case in the District Court, an Inter Partes Review (IPR) in the PTAB, or a patent case or proceeding in the International Trade Commission (ITC). A digital forensics expert can determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft.
In a litigation support scenario, an expert can expect courtroom testimony, as well as other expert witness services such as depositions, mediation, expert opinion, expert testimony, a prior art search, expert report, computer forensic analysis, claim charts, and related consulting activities. In high profile cases, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, previous expert witness testimony experience is often a requirement. An information systems expert witness needs to not only have technical expertise, but should also possess the ability to explain technology and evidence to lay people. In addition, the attorney team may seek a subject matter expert in information systems for pre-litigation consulting work.
