Considering the importance of e-commerce and e-governance, the Government of India enacted The Information Technology Act of 2000. This law, however, did not cover specific computer or Internet crimes such as publishing sexually explicit material, voyeurism, breach of confidentially, leakage of data, e-commerce frauds such as phishing, identity theft and propagation of offensive messages. The Information Technology (Amendment) Act, 2008, was then introduced to address such issues.
There is thus a requirement of trained professionals who are versed in the usage of lawful technology. The program “Cyber Law- The Indian Perspective” addresses the rising concerns of the cyberspace and aims to provide a skilled workforce to the industry. The program offers an in-depth knowledge of the cyber law and its application in India as per:
- The Information Technology Act, 2000
- The Information Technology (Amendment) Act, 2008
- All applicable orders, rules, and regulations
