On 10 July 2019, ASIC’s case against James Gibbs came to a close and he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment, with a non-parole period of seven years to serve.

Episode 49: ASIC's case against hacker Steven Oakes

25 June 2019

A man sits outside an office building on his laptop. He keeps to himself and passers-by don’t really notice him. He has been outside this office building before, but he is not interested in going inside. Unknown to those around him, and the company operating inside the building, this man is inside their network, accessing confidential information and reading their emails. He’s after inside information.

Steven Oakes was sentenced on 25 June 2019 in the County Court at Melbourne to a total effective sentence of three years imprisonment, and ordered that he be released after serving 18 months of the term of imprisonment, on his own recognisance to be of good behaviour for 18 months, after pleading guilty to a total of 11 charges for insider trading, unauthorised access to data with the intention to commit a serious offence (insider trading) and the alteration of electronic devices required by ASIC.

In this episode, we hear from the investigators behind ASIC’s case - Peter Ridgley and Anthony Vardy.
