Abstract

The twin concepts of cyber security and cyber laws are fast becoming one of the most relevant areas of interestfor the Indian Government as well as the Indian public in general. In a country such as ours which is taking fledgling yet resolute steps towards digitisation of her economy, the concept of cyber security becomes important for two reasons. The first reason is the fact that India's physical infrastructure has a long way to go in terms of protecting and resisting cyber-attacks. The second reason is that for a majority of Indians the concept of digitisation, e-transactions etc. have begun to assume importance only very recently. Therefore in the interests of both the Nation as well as its people, the efforts towards creatinga foolproof cyber security web backed by an effective cyber law framework and improving them from time to time must be continuous in nature.
