Cyber law awareness in India is still not satisfactory. Neither the general public nor the law enforcement agencies of India are well versed with the cyber law and its applicability in India. The cyber security awareness in India is missing.
Cyber law in India is incorporated in the information technology act 2000. The IT Act 2000 was amended by the information technology amendment act 2008. Concepts like cyber security, cyber forensics, e-discovery, e-commerce, e-courts, online dispute resolution (ODR), etc are also fields related to cyber law. A very good resource spreading world class cyber law awareness in India can be found here.
At Perry4Law and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) we have been spreading cyber law awareness in India for almost a decade. We believe that concepts like cyber law due diligence in India and Internet intermediary liability in India must be properly understood by all the stakeholders.
In short, Internet intermediary laws in India and cyber due diligence must be duly complied with by all the stakeholders that have a dealing in the cyberspace. For instance, the e-commerce websites dealing with online pharmacies, online gamming and gambling, online selling of adult merchandise, etc are openly and continuously violating the laws of India, especially the cyber law of India. Such violations are happening for the simple reason that cyber law awareness among e-commerce stakeholders in India is missing.
PTLB is also managing the exclusive cyber crimes investigation centre of India. PTLB is also managing the exclusive techno legal cyber and hi-tech crimes investigation and training centre (CHCIT) of India.
We hope our cyber law awareness initiatives in India would be helpful to all cyber law stakeholders of India.
