International Seminar on Cyber Space-Geeta Institute of Law

By | August 12, 2017

BACKGROUND

The nature of the Internet is changing and this new medium is being seen as the most ultimate medium ever evolved in human history, every activity by general people in Cyberspace can and will have a Cyber legal perspective.

From the time a person registers Domain Name, to the time he sets up his website, to the time he promotes the website, to the time he sends or receives emails, to the time he conducts electronic commerce transactions on the said site, at every point of time, there are enormous Cyberlaw issues involved.

It is viewed that the present issue of cybercrime might not be the concern of general public as these problematic cyber activities are thought to be distant and that they do not form a major impact on the Cyber activities common people which is a misconception.

Cybercrime is unlawful acts wherein the computer is either a tool or a target or both. Cybercrimes can involve criminal activities that are traditional in nature, such as theft, fraud, forgery, defamation, and mischief, all of which are subject to the Indian Penal Code.

The abuse of computers has also given birth to a gamut of new age crimes that are addressed by the Information Technology Act, 2000. Thus, it has become vital for the law and society to tighten the belts and take note of Cyberlaw for the protection of the general public as this is no longer an issue which can be ignored.

Presently almost whole of the population of India is a potential cyber user and is facing cyber-crimes on a regular basis that mostly go unreported. The reason behind this improper implementation of cyberlaw can be its lack of awareness and execution and in order to improve the prevailing scenario, it becomes absolutely necessary to take initiatives and provide a platform for better understanding of cyber issues.

Therefore, GIL endeavors to provide the platform to academicians, thinkers, and students from around the globe to discuss, deliberate and debate and contemplate solutions to this issue which is pertinent, relevant and imperative in contemporary society.
