As part of my forensics studies, I recently attempted to do a data recovery for a local school. I was unsuccessful, but I had paperwork that gave me permission. Without paperwork, it's still your word against theirs. Remember, Oral contracts (by handshake, or verbal agreements) is never binding in court. I am NOT a lawyer. Perhaps EC-council should add another module going deeper into the laws. My courseware when I did the class hit on the federal laws applicable at the time (2004), but it was only the basics. My instructor, who was a Juris Doctorate, told us "If you are ever arrested for terrorism (cyber-terrorism) YOU DO NOT get to speak to a lawyer".
