Cyber Security Technology Expert

for Patent Case

The need

Attorneys defending a cyber security company against a patent suit brought by a competing cyber security company needed an expert in cyber security technology to defend their case. The patents in-suit related to a system that included a content inspection engine, the provided downloadable security profiles as well as a protection engine. An ideal expert would have deep knowledge of the technology used in the patent family.

Our approach

From conversations with the client, we understood that testifying experience was highly preferred. In fact, the ideal candidate would have testified successfully in a patent case involving a similar technology. We went to work to find the precise fit.

The expert

We found and expert with over 25 years of experience in network systems and security. He had been a senior security consultant for a prominent firm and worked on many high-profile government cyber security projects. Additionally, he had a deep knowledge of the technology used in the patent in-suit and had published several articles related to it. Finally, he was an experienced expert witness and had written expert reports, been disposed, and testified in court successfully. The civil case was terminated by the plaintiff.
