The Sedona Conference - Electronic Information in Criminal Actions
June 14, 2010
This conference is presented by The United States District Court for the District of New Jersey in association with The Sedona Conference.
We live in a digital world, in which a vast array of electronic information, devices, and networks affect almost all human activity - including criminal activity and law enforcement. The acquisition and use of electronic information for the prosecution and trial of criminal actions and the defense thereof is not confined to "computer crimes" such as hacking or data piracy. Electronic evidence can be relevant to all types of crime, from international terrorism and espionage to child pornography, drug trafficking, kidnapping, or murder; to financial fraud; or even to traffic violations. The volume, complexity, and volatility of electronic information require that attorneys - both prosecution and defense - become aware of the common problems and opportunities that electronic information presents. Moreover, the presence of electronic evidence in a criminal action may require attorneys on both "sides" to rethink old patterns of adversarial behavior and come up with more creative strategies for effective advocacy.
Steve Byers is speaking about ESI in Investigations and ESI and Search Warrants.
