About The Workshop
National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU), an institution of National Importance, aims to provide world-class education in forensics science and allied subjects. Cybersecurity and Law are broad concepts that deal with integrating legal principles and the advent of technology. Cyber security helps in evolving various mechanisms through which cyberspace can be secured, which at a time creates legal implications. This Workshop, organized by the School of Law of Forensic Justice & Policy Studies, NFSU, in association with Shastri Indo Canadian Institute, aims at the dissemination and deliberation of scientific investigative knowledge and the intricacies of cyber security law.
The objective of this workshop is to discuss various aspects of cybercrimes and cyber laws and the problem of lawmaking and policy initiatives in this regard. This issue is of great importance in recent times as the whole world is connected in one place and is accessible at any time and place. Technology is the driving force for development. There are many ways in which it can be used to protect individuals and society.
But technology has always been a double-edged sword. The forces of evil will not hesitate to take advantage of these emerging technologies and deploy than against the masses. The more we plug our devices and our lives into the global informational grid, whether it’s through mobile phones, social networks, elevators, or self-driving cars, the more vulnerable we become to those who know how the underlying technologies work and how they are exploited. A strong regulatory framework that has international jurisdiction is the need of the hour to control this phenomenon.
Each aspect of the topic will be thoroughly analyzed to educate the participants on how to deal with the issue in different levels of educational practice.
This Workshop is an attempt to provide a platform for interdisciplinary discussion on the current issues involving cyber security and law for researchers, practitioners, educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of cyber security and law
