THE NIGHTMARES OF AN INFORMATION SECURITY PROFESSIONAL IN SOUTH AMERICA
“In 2014, Alberto Daniel Hill, an expert in cybersecurity, found a security issue in a medical provider’s website. In reporting the issue, it led him to become the first person imprisoned in Uruguay for a computer-related crime — a crime he did not commit, and one that probably never even happened.
Alberto, a hacker, was the perfect target for a judicial system that does not understand cybersecurity or cybercrimes. Through police misconduct and incompetence, his life was thrown into upheaval, and he is still recovering from a system where there are no guarantees of a fair trial.
Rife with injustice and anguish, Alberto’s story does not have a fairy tale ending. It is a lesson for Uruguay and the world to implement fair processes for prosecuting cybercrimes. Alberto’s tale will stand as a stark reminder of the dangers of a judiciary system that has not caught up to the technology of the 21st century. “
