    Testifying in a Computer Crimes Case

    http://www.windowsecurity.com/articl...er-Crimes.html

    Remember that jury members (and the judge, for that matter) are probably not technology experts. Make sure your answers are clear and simple enough for non-techies to understand. Avoid jargon and acronyms, even the ones that seem obvious to you (the average juror doesn't know what DNS is, and may not even know what DSL is). Don't "talk down" to the jury.
    And in the case of many of our members no swearing or name calling.

    Personally

    I always try not to talk down users. Just cause I know more about computers then they do ...doesn't make me any smarter then them. I dont know how to do thier job...and they dont know how to do mine. I just try and provide with the tools for them to work smarter and prevent the company from losing data eg..files stored locally .

    Then there is the otherside ..the paper pros...all the diplomas..certs..etc

    The ones with all those letters beside their name...but no real experience

    and dumb, dumb dumb!!!

    As I always say

    "Just cause your a doctor.....dosent make you a good one!"

    I know my clients appreciate me making this effort
    they keep calling

    Only once I was summoned to sit on a jury...which is a rarity in Canada...never found out what kind of trial it was going to be because it was pled before going to trial and I received notice in the mail that my services would no longer be required. Most cases in Canada don't require a jury...or rarely get to that stage.
