Join EFF's Cindy Cohn at ACM's Access, Excess, and Trespass: Van Buren & the CFAA virtual webinar.

Early this month, the Supreme Court ended decades of uncertainty for security researchers, database users, and internet business builders about the scope of the landmark 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) . . . or did it?! Find out on Thursday, June 24 at 5:00pm EDT as USTPC Law Subcommittee Chair and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Andy Grosso moderates the next USTPC HotTopics webinar: a 90-minute deep dive into the Court’s new and long-awaited Van Buren decision.

The CFAA’s twisted history, (mis) application in both criminal and civil cases, conflicts with civil liberties, and how the Van Buren decision could affect security and technology research all will be covered by a truly stellar panel of USTPC and guest experts.
