About the Webinar

Cosponsored with Sidley Austin LLP.

In Van Buren v. United States, the Supreme Court ruled Van Buren did not “exceed authorized access” to the database, as the CFAA defines that phrase, even though he obtained information from the database for an improper purpose. In sum, an individual “exceeds authorized access” when he accesses a computer with authorization but then obtains information located in particular areas of the computer that are off limits to him.
