Nick Oberheiden Sheds Light on What to Do After Receiving a Cybercrime Subpoena?

The FBI is in charge of responding to a subpoena for information about cybercrime. The investigating team arrives with search warrants in hand, in order to gather information on the variety of offences. But what should you do if you are subpoenaed to testify against someone who has committed a computer crime? First and foremost, you must reply to the subpoena in a professional and strategic manner. What matters is that you are guilty or not of the crime. You are indicating that you accept the charges by not replying. If you are unsure of what to do, it is best to delegate the situation to a qualified specialist.

An FBI subpoena can be difficult to deal with, but attorney Nick Oberheiden, the founder of Oberheiden P.C., is the best person to speak with. He has extensive experience in the investigation and prosecution of online financial crimes, cybercrimes, public fraud, counterintelligence, and all other types of fraudulent activity. According to Nick, a cybercrime subpoena is a ticking time bomb that needs to be addressed immediately. In the event that you do not reply quickly, it will explore and cause havoc in more ways than you can think.

Defending against a cybercrime necessitates extensive research and investigation. Here’s what Nick will do if he is appointed to handle your case.

1. Data retrieval

In circumstances involving the internet, determining the Internet Protocol address is vital. This address holds the information about the data that is being transmitted across the internet. It assists Nick in locating valuable information such as geolocation, local service provider, associated domain name, and who operates the network address, among other things.

Consider the scenario in which someone gained access to your IP and altered your customer’s financial information. Your company has been served with a subpoena by a customer. You, on the other hand, are certain that you done nothing wrong. In that situation, getting data from your IP address may be able to provide your attorney with some insight into who did what.

2. Data investigation

The lawyer should begin the investigation by putting a lock on the copy of the material that was obtained in the first step of the process. This enables Nick to adjust the data and also to examine it without the data being permanently altered by anyone else. The IT crew is even called in to help Nick get to the bottom of the truth by extracting information from gadgets. He gathers and analyses as much information as possible to guarantee that his client is not found guilty of the charges.

It is possible to establish a strong case against the offender with the help of the extraction software, which reveals crucial facts such as GPS positions, written documents, photos, timestamps, and other encrypted data.

3. Preparing a questionnaire 

Along with investigating, Nick also writes a questionnaire that will be used to interrogate his adversary. His queries are based on the circumstances and the nature of the offence in question. Some of the most often asked questions by him are as follows:

Were the crimes exclusively committed within the borders of the United States?

What time period did the crimes take place in? Specify the date and time of the event.

Who are some of your possible suspects? Who would you choose if you were to cut it down to just one individual? What digital evidence do you have against my client, and how did you get it?

I’m curious as to when you came across this evidence. Specify the date and time of the event.

The purpose of these questions is to discredit the opposition’s primary point of attack. Nick attempts to create doubt in the minds of the jury members prior to delivering his facts. This assists him in explaining his side of the issue to the jury, so increasing his chances of receiving a positive result.

Please do not hesitate to contact Oberheiden P.C. and request the services of Nick as your subpoena defence attorney if you have been served with a subpoena on your person or your business.
