Story
Tagline
Attorney | Expertise in emerging digital information law areas of Computer Fraud, Data Security, Privacy & Social Media Law | blogger, author, and speaker.
Introduction
I am an experienced business, litigation, and intellectual property attorney who helps businesses assess, avoid, and resolve problems including those with emerging digital information law issues such as computer fraud, data breach, privacy and social media legal issues with a strong emphasis on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.  I am a devoted Christian, husband, father, author & speaker. Despite being a lawyer, I am actually guided by principles!  My practice has a strong focus on the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. I counsel business clients on how to avoid trouble on these issues and, should they find themselves in trouble, help them resolve the issues in the most expeditious and efficient way possible, which is where my extensive litigation training and skills become very helpful.  I am also a blogger, author, and speaker. I am very thankful to be blessed with a wonderful family, friends, career, and life in general. I love God, my family, my career and the opportunities I have to continue growing and learning while helping others. You can visit my personal website / blog (www.shawnetuma.com) to learn more about who I am Personally and Professionally, as well as my Professional Philosophy. Also note that Google does not use my middle initial but most of my professional activities are listed with my name as Shawn E. Tuma so if you're searching for something and are doing a search, use that full name as well.
Bragging rights
I am married to the most wonderful woman in the world, Rachel Tuma, and have the 5 most amazing children anyone could ever ask for: Katherine, Clara, Christopher, Andrew and Seth! I am truly blessed!

Hacking an airplane??? Well, here is an article I wrote just over a year ago about hacking an airplane -- based upon the news of this past weekend, what do you think?
Hackers can take over cars by hacking into their on board computer systems. Does it not stand to reason that they could do the same thing to an airplane? Maybe, maybe not, but a recent ruling by th...
