I’m intentionally altering the main points to guard the responsible, however I’m practically sure the essence of the scenario are legally the identical as what I describe beneath.
Suppose a cyber safety skilled (CSP) obtained the username and password credentials of a foul man (BG) who had poor operational safety. The BG didn’t intend to disclose the credentials however the CSP has them and is aware of the BG is within the technique of acquiring credentials through misleading means from the group the CSP works for.
The CSP, by utilizing the credentials of the BG, can quickly mitigate harm executed by the deceptively obtained company credentials.
Whereas everybody on the CSP’s staff sees this as morally justified, one staff member (WB) throws a moist blanket on the CSP’s plan to make use of the BG’s credentials to get info the BG’s meant to maintain personal and use for sick gotten positive factors. WB claims that, legally, the BG credentials have been “stolen” and may the CSP use them to surreptitiously entry the BG’s knowledge the CSP could be committing against the law.
I’m nearly sure it is a crime, if not the U.S. then another international locations which can or might not be concerned. And, if the CSP had been do that, I’m nearly sure it might by no means be prosecuted. However committing felonies you suppose you’re going to get away with doesn’t look like a very good merchandise to place in your resume and even admit to others.
What do you guys consider this?
