Search Warrants, Subpoenas, and Court Orders: What You Need to Know

If law enforcement shows up at my datacenter with a search warrant, what are my options? What if I receive a subpoena in my inbox? And what about a discovery order – is that the same thing? In fact, there are at least seven different ways that law enforcement and regulatory agencies can demand to inspect your documents or your systems. Add to that court orders on behalf of civil litigants and the broad ability of lawmakers to demand that you testify in person, and the potential for harm or embarrassment becomes immense. In the presentation by information security legal veterans, we break down all of the many ways that government authorities can make demands of you and what you can do about it.

Learning Objectives:

  • Appreciate the differences among 2703(d) orders, national security letters and similar instruments.
  • Evaluate your options when the government or litigants demand your documents or other information.
