The internet appears to be an information paradise from one perspective. However, seen from another perspective, internet appears to be a serious battlefield for various state and non-state actors. Increasingly, cyber actors are using cyberspace for perpetuating various cyber attacks.
The pandemic times are the times of unprecedented significance which throw up new distinctive challenges that have not been thrown up earlier.
The increasing reliance on cyberspace during the pandemic times in the third decade of the twenty first century, has thrown up unprecedented new cyber and ethical issues and challenges. As stakeholders increasingly turn on to cyberspace in the times of the public health emergency, they share their experiences, perspectives as also offer assistance, numerous cyber ethical questions come up for consideration. A number of these ethical questions have legalities connected therewith.
Internet has been growing by leaps and bounds. We are familiar with the Internet of Things (IOT) where all kinds of smart devices are getting connected to the internet. But beyond the advent and emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), a new kind of internet is being postulated. This is known as the Internet of Behaviour.
This is a new paradigm which is substantially based on Internet of Things (IoT) but is specifically focused on analyzing the various data generated by data entities in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem and substantially impacting user behaviours.
Internet of Things (IOT) as a phenomenon seems to have become an integral part of our lives. We are getting more dependent on Internet of Things (IOT) devices. The Internet of Things (IOT) presents boundless new opportunities for all stakeholders. However, cyber security breaches are rampant on the Internet of Things (IOT).
The absence of global agreement on cyber security standards for Internet of Things (IOT) effectively means that cyber criminals are having a field day. Hence, trying to regulate cyber security in Internet of Things (IOT) needs to become a top most priority from the governance standpoint. It is in this context that the regulation of cyber security in Internet of Things (IOT) has started assuming immense significance.
Ransomware is one of the increasing complex phenomenon that one is beginning to see in cyberspace these days. Ransomware focuses on depriving entities of legitimate access to their data till such time they pay ransom for the same. Ransomware attacks are constantly increasing in their frequency and contribute to growing economic losses by corporate. Ransomware attacks have begun to throw up various legal, policy and regulatory issues and challenges. These challenges and issues are of immense significance, as the same tantamount to important aspects which require consideration by all stakeholders.
This book seeks to analyse various complicated legal, policy and regulatory issues concerning ransomware. It seeks to highlight the various distinct legal challenges that stakeholders are facing, given the constant onslaught of ransomware attacks by cyber criminals.
India has been seeing a dramatic increase in fake news over the last many years. From merely being a western phenomenon, fake news has got itself entrenched as an integral element of the Indian information ecosystem. Given the fact that as India adds more users to its internet user base, there is increasing propensity amongst people to take for granted, what they see online as correct.
Consequently, fake news has begun to start having an impact not just upon social media, internet and cyberspace but also in the physical world activities and events.
The coming of the year 2020 has brought forward irreversible changes in cyberspace. Thanks to the public health emergency, digitization has massively increased and the internet has become new lifeline of people across the world. The coming of pandemic has had an impact upon cyber legal approaches and perspectives.
Different countries have focused on adopting diverse legal approaches and strategies, which have been, in their own manner, contributing to the evolving Cyberlaw jurisprudence in 2020.
This book examined the evolving developments of Cyberlaw jurisprudence in 2020. This book further analyzes how the advent of pandemic has necessitated countries to change their existing strategies so as to deal with legal challenges thrown up by the public health emergency. This book examines the holistic important global developments in Cyberlaw jurisprudence in 2020 during the era of the pandemic.
The year 2020 has seen dramatic developments in the history of the world. A public health emergency, which began in one part of the world, has today engulfed the entire world. The said public health emergency has become so huge that it has instilled massive fear and panic amongst the hearts of all citizens and stakeholders. Countries have experienced lockdowns, economies has come to a grinding halt and jobs are being lost with each passing day.
During the public health emergency period of 2020, there has been a massive increase in cybersecurity breaches all over the world. These increasing cybersecurity breaches have compelled different stakeholders to come up with their own national cybersecurity legal frameworks and approaches, to deal with emerging challenges of cybersecurity breaches.
This book seeks to examine the evolving growth and further development of cybersecurity law jurisprudence in 2020, the year of the public health emergency.
The public health emergency of the year 2020 has been an unprecedented event in recent history, which has brought alongwith it, a sense of panic, despair and anxiety all around.
Countries are increasingly mandating social isolation and social distancing as a way to contain the further transmission and dissemination of such infections. In this context, more and more countries and statutory organizations are increasingly encouraging private sector players and semi-governmental organizations to allow their employees to work from home, wherever feasible.
Working from home has been a concept that has been in existence for some time. However, this entire concept of Work From Home is being retested for its resilience and its efficacy in the year 2020. However, the increased adoption and reliance on Work From Home, in 2020, has specifically brought forward various peculiar and unique legal, policy and regulatory nuances which need to be addressed by all stakeholders. These nuances are all the more special and important, given the constantly changing ground realities and given the massive advancement of cyber security breaches and cybercrime incidents that have been constantly growing with the advent of the pandemic.
The year 2020 has seen an unprecedented public health emergency, which has impacted countries across the world and India is no exception.
With national lockdown being announced and implemented in India, Work From Home has become a practical defacto ground reality.
Most of the companies are forced to now adopt Work From Home. However, Work From Home in India as a concept that has not yet substantially evolve in the past. Hence, Work From Home in India in the year 2020, is likely to bring forward various complicated cyber legal, policy and regulatory issues which stakeholders are beginning to face.
These cyber legal, policy and regulatory issues and challenges concerning Work From Home need to be keep in mind by all stakeholders while Working From Home. These issues also would need to be merit attention of lawmakers.
