Infoworld recently reported about how folks can become anonymous on the Internet which comes in the wake of the 37 million individuals who were exposed in the Ashley Madison hack. The August 25, 2015 report was entitled “9 steps to make you completely anonymous online” and included these 9 steps which all lawyers need to understand in order to find witnesses and ESI:

  1. Find a safe country
  2. Get an anonymizing operating system
  3. Connect anonymously
  4. Use Tor
  5. Don’t use plug-ins
  6. Stick with HTTP/S
  7. Avoid the usual applications
  8. Set up burner accounts
  9. Never use credit cards

Any lawyer who doesn’t understand these 9 steps is way behind the curve in 2015!
