Shawn and I have been trying to get together to record an episode for what seems like forever. We first started talking about the CFAA (Computer Fraud and Abuse Act) when it was ruled that a person could not be charged as a 'hacked' under the CFAA by their employer when they accessed information improperly if the employed did not restrict that access appropriately. Shawn's expert insight here as an attorney dealing with the CFAA shines as we talk about hacking, vulnerability research, and other critical topics to the hacker culture, information security industry and security professionals.
You're not going to want to miss what Shawn has to say... I want to thank him for his time, and encourage anyone who needs the sort of advice Shawn has to give him a call, or send him a Tweet.
