Enabling Technologies of Cyber Crime: Why Lawyers Need to Understand It

Abstract


This Article discusses the enabling technologies of cyber crime and analyzes their role in the resolution of related legal issues.

It concludes that lawyers who fail to understand the translation will likely pursue a suboptimal litigation strategy, face speculative recovery prospects, and may overlook effective and potentially powerful defenses.
