A self-professed "Cyber Security Forensic Expert Witness & Investigator" in Australia has come under fire from critics in recent months for a variety of allegations.
You can read more about some of these allegations here.
He has now gone to the Victorian courts where he has made claims against at least 3 people in order to justify Personal Safety Intervention Orders ("Restraining Order"). I have written a bit more in-depth about what a PSIO is here.
I must hire a lawyer and travel interstate to Victoria to attend court. The funds collected through this crowdfund campaign will contribute to my legal defence.
I'm asking for support from those in the IT industry and general public.
I also ask that everyone shows restraint in making direct contact with this person in relation to this matter, and refrain from any threats or harassment. It will not help my case and in spite of everything, he has a right to live in peace.
Any funds remaining after my case has concluded will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit organisation devoted to defending civil liberties in the digital world. As a gesture of goodwill towards, if he agrees to drop these proceedings and not take any further action, I will donate all funds received to the EFF.
