The Federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) provides civil and criminal penalties for people who access computers without authorization. In the past, the CFAA sanctioned penalties only for those who accessed computers used by the government or financial institutions, or when the violation affected interstate commerce. Recent judicial decisions have broadened the scope of the law. Now, businesses and private parties that have suffered damages due to unauthorized computer use may seek legal recourse under the CFAA.
If your company’s computers or systems have been compromised, it is important to consult with an attorney who is knowledgeable in CFAA cases. At Kaufman & Forman, P.C., we have been serving clients from Atlanta, throughout Georgia and nationwide for more than 30 years. We are committed to protecting our clients’ rights and interests in intellectual property and technology-related law.

A Civil CFAA Claim Can Help Minimize The Cost Of A Network Breach
Businesses depend upon computers to store and send confidential and proprietary information. For business owners, it is critical to protect computers and computer networks from unauthorized access.
A claim for civil damages under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act can be brought against parties outside a business who illegally infiltrate the business’s computers — or against internal parties who exceed their authorization to access sensitive information.
If you are involved in a legal dispute involving allegations of unauthorized computer access, our attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and options. We have a proven record of success obtaining results for clients in a broad range of litigation matters.
