About the conference
Cyber Crimes in India is one of the most challenging issues in contemporary times. It has posed several questions to our traditional legal jurisprudence. The issue has also received attention nationally and worldwide with the emergence of newer technology. It has impetus and relevance in contemporary times because of the several initiatives made by the government like ‘Make in India’, ‘Digital India’ where the companies across the world are invited to make their investment in India.
Trans-border data flow and data Security are the terms mostly talked about the world over. Leading nations such as USA, UK and European Union including some other nations adopted tougher legislation in their respective domains to ensure that their citizen’s rights are well protected. In fact, India also has its draft Personal Data Protection Bill in India for stringent enforcement of data breach violations. The Bill requires thorough discussion by all the stakeholders before taking a shape of law.
Cyber warfare is equally a potential weapon waiting to strike at the right opportunity if the cyber architecture is not well defended. It is the fifth and new domain of warfare after land, sea, air and space. Some countries, along with terrorist outfits, have already demonstrated these facets of cybercrimes, displaying their cyber prowess. In the interest of our citizen and to the Nation we must act against the forces of law to build the atmosphere of Rule of Law.
Over a period of time, leading nations comprehended the consequences of a cyber-attacks ranging from a virus that corrupts sensitive financial records or incapacitates the booming stock market, to a false message that causes a nuclear reactor to shut off or a dam to open, or a blackout of the air traffic control system that may result in air crash, which may all create a severe and widespread economic or physical damage.
Indian law on Information Technology by some amendments appears to have made some headway in the direction but substantive gaps persist in definitions, conceptual comprehension and consistency of Rules read with the Act.
