Computer Security Expert Witnesses & Taxpayer Security Breach

Computer & TechnologyComputer security expert witnesses may write reports and testify on forensic computer investigation, computer crime, and computer security systems.  Recently South Carolina state officials warned taxpayers that 3.6 million Social Security numbers and other personal data were exposed in a recent attack on Department of Revenue servers.  Citizens who used a credit card to pay their taxes have been urged to monitor their statements for illegal use.

This follows the breach in May of confidential data, including bank account and Social Security numbers for some 350,000 University of North Carolina students, staff and faculty.  Data accidentally became vulnerable because of incorrect security and computer system settings.
