Cyber Terrorism In India And Its Solutions

The traditional concepts and methods of terrorism have taken new dimensions, which are more destructive and deadly in nature. In the age of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) terrorists have acquired an expertise to produce the most deadly combination of weapons and technology, which if not properly safeguarded in due course of time, will take its own toll. The damage so produced would be almost irreversible and most catastrophic in nature. In short, we are facing the worst form of terrorism popularly known as "Cyber Terrorism".

Legal Framework For E-Governance In India

Legal enablement of ICT systems in India and legal framework for information society of India are still missing in India. For instance, we have no legal framework for e-courts in India, online dispute resolution in India, mandatory e-governance services in India, etc. Further, we have no dedicated legal framework for cloud computing in India as on date.

Although electronic delivery (e-delivery) of services in India is needed yet in the absence of suitable policies and legal frameworks in this regard, e-delivery of services in India is still a dream.

Digital Communication Channels For Drugs And Healthcare Products In India

E-commerce in India is booming and pharmaceutical and health care industry is also eying upon the same for greater reach and more profits. However, legal enablement of e-health in India is still missing. In fact, e-health in India is facing legal roadblocks. Till now we do not have any dedicated e-health laws and regulations in India.

Electronic Trading Of Medical Drugs In India

Electronic trading or online shopping of commodities is a fast, efficacious and cost effective method of business and commerce. However, e-trading is not a free ride but is subject to well defined rules and regulations world wide. This is more so regarding pharmaceutical products that require an additional precaution while dealing in an online environment.

We have no dedicated e-commerce laws and regulations in India. However, the basic outline of the same has been laid down in the information technology act 2000 (IT Act 2000). The IT Act 2000 is also the sole cyber law of India that primarily deals with contraventions and offences pertaining to e-commerce and e-trading in India.

Indian Mobile Banking Cyber Security

In this post by zgoldmann, the author has discussed about the state of mobile banking cyber security in India. The author referred to this article about Indian cyber security that portrays one of the fundamental flaws of the tech age we are living in. Technology is moving faster than the rules and laws that may govern it. And even when laws and mandates do catch up with technology it is nearly impossible to make sure everyone complies with them.

This article addresses primarily the fact that Indian Banks have adopted new mobile banking technologies without protecting their customers by ensuring that their security is up to par. This leaves customers at extreme risk. Furthermore, because under the law these crimes have not been put into one specific category (financial or cyber), most banks are just blaming their customers where they can.

From what I can tell even though there are SOME laws and regulations in place about mobile banks, there need to be more and ones that are not redundant. But more than this, it seems as though India needs a regulatory body over mobile banking to ensure that both banks and consumers are fulfilling their duties, and not leaving themselves open to blind attacks. I think if this came into being and was effective, mobile banking would be much more widely accepted in India.

Techno legal experts from India’s exclusive ICT law firm Perry4Law and techno legal institution PTLB have been maintaining that India’s cyber security challenges have become too gruesome to be ignored. Cyber security issues in India have been ignored for too long. Mobile banking cyber security in India is one such aspect of Indian cyber security that has been ignored. It is high time for Indian government to do the needful in this regard.
