Computer Intrusion Lawyer in Los Angeles

Computer intrusion is a serious violation of law with a likelihood of imprisonment and/or damages. Unfortunately because computer intrusion is typically sophisticated and many times anonymous, the government is likely to investigate an innocent individual. Moreover, many attorneys do not have the background and/or knowledge to successfully defend or prosecute computer intrusion. Someone involved with computer intrusion needs the expertise of a strong Internet attorney.

What is computer intrusion?

Computer intrusion is breaking into computer systems, frequently with intentions to alter or modify existing settings. Sometimes malicious in nature, these intrusions may cause damage or disruption to computer systems or networks. People with malevolent intent are often referred to as "hackers"--as in "hacking" into computers.

"Intrusion" entails approaching, trespassing within, communicating with, storing data in, retrieving data from, or otherwise intercepting and changing computer resources without consent. These laws relate to either or both, or any other actions that interfere with computers, systems, programs or networks.

Many states have enacted "computer intrusion" laws or have laws that explicitly include electronic forms of communication within more traditional trespassing laws. This chart identifies only state laws that include specific references to computer intrusion. However, other state laws may still apply to those who trespass or intrude to others online, although specific language may make the laws easier to enforce. This chart classifies the various state laws addressing computer intrusion.
