Overview of Information Technology and Cyber Law

Cyber law is a relatively new body of law. The success of computers and information technology called for the need to have the cyber law. In order to understand what cyber law is, it is important to understand the meaning of cyber crimes. Cyber crimes are those unlawful acts which are performed using or targeting a computer or any such technology. These crimes are on an upsurge with the emergence of e-banking, e-commerce, and e-governance. Since the internet has become an own world in itself, every unsolicited and unlawful activity such as fraud, spoofing, stalking, harassing, defaming, pornography, gambling etc. come under the ambit of cyber crimes. In the wake of this, it was rather a necessity to encompass the world of technology with a specific law. Cyber law encapsulates the legislations related to the internet or information technology. These legislations (or statutory law) are enacted to regulate cyber crimes. Indian Government upholds cyber security through Information Technology Act, 2000. The act prevents controls and punishes cyber misconducts. Time and again, even on international forums, a need is felt to adopt strict laws for regulation of IT activities and to penalize and punish criminal activities. Despite many efforts made, the internet world is not free of harmful elements and persons involving in harmful acts continue to exist all over the world.
