Malware Expert Witnesses
Malware expert witness candidates typically have advanced degrees and backgrounds in computer science, software engineering, cybersecurity, computer security, information security, and/or internet applications. On behalf of the plaintiff or defendant, Cahn Litigation Services is often called upon by law firm clients to locate expert witnesses that can support software matters, including cases involving malware.
A malware expert witness could be engaged to provide expert witness services for intellectual property matters, such as a patent litigation in federal court or a trade secrets dispute. Expert support could extend to 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).
Digital forensics experts can utilize reverse engineering skills to determine if there is evidence to reveal intellectual property infringement or theft. Criminal cases can also require a malware subject matter expert for projects such as those involving child pornography or other illegal activity.
Litigation support by a malware expert witness could include software analysis, digital forensic investigation, computer forensics, an expert report, expert opinion, expert testimony, and trial testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request a testifying expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. A malware expert witness needs to not only have the appropriate substantive expertise but must also possess the ability to explain digital evidence to lay people, including a jury. In addition, clients may seek malicious software expert for pre-litigation consulting work.
