Palmyra, NJ (10/15/18) “Information Management and the Courts: An Update” by John C. Montaña, J.D., FIIM, FAI.


This report examines and analyzes United States Court decision concerning information management in the following four areas:

  • Data Breaches and Liability Who owns data collected in cloud-based systems? Who has standing to litigate when breaches occur?
  •  E-discovery and Spoliation What constitutes ownership, custody and control of records and data, particularly as the lines blur between personal and business devices, and data distributed amongst systems is shared by business partners, contractors, vendor and others?
  •  Records and information policies and procedures how do the courts view them; how do they operate in litigation?
  • Data rights What rights does an organization have to data that it receives/collects from clients and other third-parties?
  The report focuses on cases from approximately 2000 to 2018, with older cases cited primarily as background for discussion of newer cases and topics. Cases topics have been selected to reflect current issues of interest and areas where legal doctrine is new or uncertain.  
The report supplements earlier work by this and other authors. This report is available at no charge at:

Warning about phishing attacks on tax prep emails

posted Mar 20, 2018, 11:48 AM by David Honeman

With tax season underway, a cybersecurity advocacy group is warning that vendors of popular tax preparation tools may be unprepared to protect users from phishing scams.

Four out of the eight most popular tax preparation software products don’t employ basic protections against email spoofing, according to testing by the cybersecurity nonprofit Global Cyber Alliance.

GCA tested the domains of the popular programs to check what settings they employ under the Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) protocol. DMARC is an industry standard designed to detect and prevent email spoofing.

GCA’s findings, released last week, are as follows:
  • Reject: Liberty Tax
  • Quarantine: Credit Karma, Jackson Hewitt and Tax Slayer
  • None: Free Tax USA and Turbo Tax
  • No policy: H&R Block and TaxAct
