San Diego, CA asked in Criminal Law, Banking, Civil Rights and Communications Law for California

Q: Is it legal to install spyware on another persons phone without their consent or knowledge?

My personal device was breached (empirical data available) I am licensed and work in the financial sector and, it is plausible and likely that some of my clients sensitive data could have been compromised as well. I know the implications on the FIN REG side. I need to know what my next move is.

I know who did this, and I have some very specific information and records that implicate these individuals. Maybe even an admission of guilt.
