Cyber Law

Computers and internet have brought about revolutionary change in the world, in almost every field. At the same time, malpractices related to the use of internet have developed side-by-side. Cyber law implies legal issues related to the use of internet. The abuse of computers has also given birth to a gamut of new age crimes. Cybercrimes involve unlawful acts wherein the computer is either tool or target or both. Common types of cybercrimes are hacking, Trojan attacks, phishing, virus attacks, e-mail spoofing, e-mail bombing and email spamming.

CHALLENGES

  • Growing dependence on computers in modern life.
  • Negligence or ignorance on the part of users.
  • Commodity, personal information, moves far too quickly because of advanced communication systems for conventional law enforcement methods to keep pace.
  • Lack of global cyber law.
  • Importance of data protection is inadequate.
  • Policies are not created based upon needs but they are copied from the internet.

OBSERVATIONS

Criminals are far ahead in using technology for criminal activities. Investigating agencies need to be a step ahead of them. It is necessary to conduct training programmes and awareness programmes on a mass scale before encouraging the public to go digital. Cyber laws must be revised from time to time and the laws must be uniform globally because cybercrimes have no boundaries. An individual’s e-mail account can be hacked from anywhere in the world. One has to get used to this new concept of virtual crime, the results of which are actual and threatening.
