There has been incredible progress with the passage of time in our society and this has resulted in several inventions. Computer and the internet are the gifts received by the mankind which has led to the development of a space without frontiers known as cyberspace and this technological advancement has given rise to issues in relation to the integrity and security of cyberspace, information, privacy, intellectual property rights, electronic transactions, etc. The usage and application of computers and Internet cover almost every area of our day to day life including education, industries, government, medicine, scientific research, law, entertainment and even in warfare. Thus it can be easily said that the computers play an important role in our day to day life. Like any other development in the science and technology, the developments in cyberspace are also not free from risks as the society has become more and more dependent on information processing and communication. This is because Internet cyberspace being one of the easiest and fastest media to spread information, there are chances of its misuse by deceitful individuals. The cyberspace because of its diversity of information, contents, posts, pictures, opinions, ease approachability and wide reach, pose several dangers to the society. The cyberspace can be abused to attack people based on their actual or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, disease or political ideology, or to commit fraud financial and otherwise, or to commit certain acts which can cause threat to the government and nation and thereby to seriously harms the peace of the society. Despite the various serious challenges caused by the misuse of cyberspace, surprisingly, there is no comprehensive law to regulate the same. Therefore, it is highly necessary to discuss as to how far the existing laws in India are effective to tackle the various challenges posed by the use and misuse of cyberspace. The Two Day National Conference on Law in Cyberspace’ attempts to examine these various challenges and concerns raised by the use and misuse of cyberspace and its regulatory framework.
