Cyber Law in India


The world of information through the internet is known as Cyberspace and the laws prevailing in this area are known as Cyber laws and whoever uses it comes under ambit of these laws and it carries a type of worldwide jurisdiction. 

Cyber law is important because it includes almost all the transactions and activities which are done through the internet. Cyber crime is not mentioned in IT Act, 2000 nor in the National Cyber Policy 2013 or in any other regulation in India.

Cyber crimes are increasing day by day and everyday there will be some news relating to cyber crimes unanticipated damages across industries and individuals which includes data breach, identity theft, financial theft and internet time thefts, amongst others. Even though cyber security is advancing day by day at the same time hackers are also developing like that by finding the ways to break into new security systems. 

Every government in the world including Indi is concerned about cyber security. In India government costs nearly 1.25 lakhs every year. In recent times RBI rejects and said that the MasterCard for failing to comply with the direction for storing payment system data. The dangers coming from the internet are limitless, and the most delicate matters are coming day by day. 

Mainly there are four laws related to cybersecurity. In our country people use internet extensively, so cyberlaw become extremely crucial. Cyber law is to supervise the digital circulation of information, information security, e-commerce, software, and money transactions. By giving the maximum cybersecurity Indian government have cleared path for electronic commerce and use of electronic media.

When it comes to IT Act, 2000, cyber laws are covered under this act only. The main motive of this act is to provide legal inclusiveness to ecommerce, facilitating the registrations of real time records with Government.

Humans are now depending on technology, cyber laws in India as well as across the world should be up graded time to time according to the situation. Pandemic had also pushed much of the work from internet. Lawmakers have to do extra mile to become advance of the impostors, in order to overcome them at their advent. Cyber crimes can be controlled but there has to be collaborative efforts of the lawmakers, the internet providers and using of internet members like banks, shopping sites, and most importantly users.

We can divide cyber crimes in two ways:

The computer as a target using a computer to attack other computers as one and the second one is computer as a weapon using a computer to commit real world crimes for example cyber terrorism, credit card frauds, pornography etc.

Data protection at corporate level Section 43A deals with a body of corporate which is negligent in implementing reasonable security and Section 65 of IT Act tell about the tampering with computer source document like a person who intentionally conceals or destroys or alters any computer source code as programs can be punished with 3 years imprisonment or 2 lakhs fine.
