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, 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."
