Prison Sentence in Akamai Trade Secrets Case


We posted on this one last June. The case involved a former employer of Akamai caught in a sting operation trying to sell company trade secrets to what he thought was Israel.

Now, UPI.com reports, Elliot Doxer of Brookline, MA has been sentenced to six months in prison and a $25,000 fine for foreign economic espionage.

According to reports, Doxer tried to sell trade secrets valued at $10 million including “confidential contracts between Akami and the FBI, [Department of Homeland Security], a leading aerospace company and several Department of Defense contractors."
