NACDL recently published a guide on challenging evidence seized by government-installed computer malware authored by the American Civil Liberties Union with input from NACDL and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The guide, “Challenging Government Hacking in Criminal Cases,” assessed recent court decisions evaluating the government’s use of malware in the context of Fourth Amendment protections from unreasonable searches. This webinar will draw from legal and technological expertise to ensure that the defense community is prepared to challenge hacking as an investigative technique. The webinar will also address the technological aspects of government hacking and the changes to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that open the door to wider use of government hacking.
