SCOTUS Resolves the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act Circuit Split -- What is Left for Employers?
In recent years, employers have relied upon the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) to pursue employees who, before departing, misappropriate company digital assets on behalf of a prospective future employer or business venture. In the U.S. Supreme Court's June 2021 Van Buren decision, the Court appeared to shut the door on that tactic, resolving a circuit split over the scope of the statute and its "exceeds authorized access" language. Or did it? This Webinar will shed light on key aspects of the Court's decision and provide guidance for members counseling management about the defense of company proprietary information.
- Help lawyers guide employers about how to reformulate workplace policies to protect company business information using the CFAA despite the Van Buren decision.
