“Hello, world.” This basic computer program is typically the starting point for all computer science, IT and technology professionals because it signifies a proof in concept, and that the language or system is operating properly. For us, it’s a perfect metaphor for our introduction to what this new practice series website is about.
Frank Gonnello Jr., Esq. (CIPP/US), and The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall have officially launched their newest legal resource site, NJ Cybercrime Lawyers (http://njcyberlaw.com) with hopes that the site can help spread awareness of the penalties and repercussions of criminal computer activity at both State and Federal levels.
“This is the starting point for a practice center that’s going to grow exponentially over the course of the next few years,” says Gonnello, who graduated from Seton Hall with a Computer Science bachelor’s degree, and a J.D./M.B.A. in IT Management. “With the way the government is scrambling to keep cybercriminals and criminal computer activity at a minimum, certain rights are potentially being violated every day.”
The site will keep an eye on the evolution of the law surrounding cyber criminal activity. A blog component will feature periodic updates of relevant case law and news stories that surround New Jersey and Federal crimes related to computer activity. This blog will also explain relevant emerging legislation, like the recent New Jersey Cyber-Harassment (A-2785) and Identity Theft clarification (A-2105) bills signed into law in January of this year, as they pass through the House, Senate and Governor’s desk.
