Can You Ever Trust A Hacker? UBS Trial Puts It To A Test


After 20 years in computer security, including 11 in the financial services industry, Karl Kasper is being vilified as a dangerous man.

Over the past month, in the trial of former UBS PaineWebber system admin Roger Duronio, Kasper has been attacked by the defense because of his background as a computer hacker and his role in UBS's investigation of the attack. The lawyer for Duronio, defending him against charges that he sabotaged UBS PaineWebber's trading network four years ago, asserted that hackers can't be trusted to do a credible investigation. Kasper says the defense team is just desperate. InformationWeek | Karl Kasper As John Tan | UPDATE: Can You Ever Trust A Hacker? UBS Trial Puts It To A Test | July 17, 2006
