Consumers are increasingly using credit cards for online and offline shopping. Most people are using e-mail, cell phones and SMS for communication. Even in "non-cyber crime" cases, important evidence is found in computers/cell phones e.g. in cases of divorce, murder, kidnapping, tax evasion, organized crime, terrorist operations, counterfeit currency etc. Cyber crime, cases such as, online banking frauds, online share trading fraud, source code theft, credit card fraud, tax evasion, virus attacks, cyber sabotage, phishing attacks, e-mail hijacking, denial of service, hacking, pornography etc. are becoming common. Digital signatures and e-contracts are fast replacing conventional methods of transacting business.
Keeping in mind the above mentioned facts, we felt it is the need of the hour to learn cyber laws. Hence, we, in association with Asian School of Cyber Laws, Pune started the Diploma in Cyber Law Course in the year 2007.
