A one-way awareness and training programme on “Cyber crimes, Cyber Laws in India & Electronic Evidence” was held at NEILIT, Meriema, Kohima on Friday. 

Organized under the aegis of the Nagaland State Legal Services Authority in collaboration with Alliance Law Office, New Delhi and National Institute of Electronics & Information Technology, Nagaland, the training was conducted with resource persons from Supreme Court judges and cyber lawyers, New Delhi- Advocate Manish Manocha, Supreme Court of India and Advocate Meena Bhandari, Supreme Court.  

Reema Bhandari, opening the training session remarked that the cyber space which is like an open book needed to be taken cognizance of as internet and technology was “spinning at a very high speed, while the wheels of justice against cyber crimes is seen to be lacking far behind the evolution and by the time laws or policies are implemented, it will become outdated.” 

She therefore, called for reactive and proactive approach towards this. 

Manish Manocha speaking on cyber attacks underscored that by 2020, 25 percent of cyber attacks against enterprises will involve IoT devices and 63% are the result of compromised user passwords and usernames. He also said that over 60% of online frauds were accomplished through mobile platforms. 

The advocate then gave insights to cyber laws in India. He also added that as a matter, to regulate cyber space, more technical spaces were getting interlinked or combined efforts of self regulation and government intervention were undertaken stating an instance when TRAI banned bulk SMSs and SPAM. 

He also cited penalties with regard to justice dispensation. 

Meena, who also dealt with cyber terrorism, noted that these criminals were way ahead and intelligent. She also added that cyber stalking was a huge cause of concern and reminded the attendees that these cases, however underreported have relevant sections of punishment. 

Manish Manocha, giving some important do’s and don’t’s of internet suggested to “go incognito” on all personal computers, laptops. He also warned on saving passwords and usernames for various social media accounts. Earlier, former member secretary Nagaland State Legal Services Authority & District & Sessions Judge, Phek inaugurated the training programme and released the bi-annual newsletter (October 2018- March 2019 issue). 

Er. Lanuwapang Lemtur, director NIELIT also delivered a speech and observed that lack of knowledge on safeguarding electronic evidence or cyber forensic analysis was prevalent among law enforcement agencies, for which, he stressed on the need for training and education through the help of experts. Tongpang L Jamir, project coordinator chaired the programme.
