IN THE NEWS Subject: Make Cybersecurity Your 2019 New Year’s Resolution With the arrival of 2019, comes new motivations and resolutions.

Also making headlines was Marriott International – having acknowledged that its monumental 2018 breach, which exposed the reservation records of nearly 400 million users, included the loss of 5 million unencrypted passport numbers.

Self-Authenticating Evidence

IN THE NEWS Self-Authenticating Evidence And Proposed Amendments to Federal Evidence Rule 902 Effective December 1, 2017, amended Rule 902 of the Federal Rules of Evidence is expected to go into effect. The amended rule makes clear that assuming compliance with notice requirements, two new categories of evidence will be considered self-authenticating: (a) records “generated by an electronic process or system that produces an accurate result, as shown by a certification of a qualified person”; and (b) data “copied from an electronic device, storage medium, or file, if authenticated by a process of digital identification, as shown by a certification of a qualified person”. These amendments will create a strong incentive to perform forensically sound collections using qualified computer forensic experts, while ultimately reducing the likelihood of needing to spend resources to have such an expert testify at trial merely to authenticate evidence.
