Mangalore, October 19: A workshop and training programme on ‘Cyber Law and Cyber Security’ was held at SDM Law College, in collaboration with Advanced Center for Research Development and Training in Cyber Laws and Forensics[ACRDTCLF] and National Law School of India University, Bangalore here on Sunday October 19th.
Dr R Venkata Rao, Vice Chancellor of National Law School of India University, Bangalore in his inaugural address said ” Can we solve the 21st century problem with 20th century mindset and with 19th century tools?, Today’s knowledge in fast changing world is becoming tomorrow’s ignorance. A person is illiterate, if he doesn’t learn, unlearn and relearn. Learning is a continuous accessory.”
He also said, “The process of learning, unlearning and relearning begins when we encounter challenges in our respective professions. The first principle on criminal which was taught to me on those days was that crime is basically against the person’s body or against the property in which offender knows to whom he is causing the offence. But, today that concept is outdated because the offender doesn’t know to whom he is causing the offence in Cyber crime. It is world of anonymity. Each individual will be the victim of computer cyber crime knowingly or unknowingly as a result of greed. Law cannot stop human greed but Law can instigate the character. Work with courage, conviction, commitment, devotion, dedication and determination. You can achieve anything”.
Principal of SDM Law College Dr P D Sebastian said, “We can see the hike in misuse of technology. Important departments of commercial institutions fear about hacking problem. In present scenario, it is not war with gun or bullets but it is with the technology. In present technology, a person from any part of world can read and get your information. It is necessary for various departments, especially our investigating agencies to be equipped with modern technologies so as to deal with the criminal issues. Cyber crime is like a cancer. It can hack any bank account, personal details and institutional data. It also leads to stealing information, erasing information or defacing information. Agencies, judiciary, legal and technological department should be all set with latest technology. Internet criminals have also begun using modern technology. In order to make it difficult for the offenders, Law, policies and regulation should be framed accordingly.”
The guests were welcomed by Professor Vidyashankar T who briefed the programme. Dr Nagarathna, Cheif Investigator of ACRDTCLF thanked.
