First Techno Legal Cyber Crimes Investigation Manual Of India

Cyber law is a technical subject and this is the reason why law enforcement officials, lawyers and judges find it difficult to understand and apply. This is also the reason that we have a very bad conviction ratio for cyber criminals in India.

The task of police, lawyers and judges would become easier if there is a ready reference that they can refer and rely upon in cases of cyber crimes. Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) and Perry4Law are in the process of writing the first and exclusive techno legal cyber crimes investigation manual of India.

The proposed manual would briefly cover areas like cyber law, cyber crimes, cyber forensics, incidence response, authorship attribution, anonymity, traceability, privacy issues, etc. It would also cover national and international best practices in this regard. The manual is in the final phase of preparation and it may be available to governmental departments and general public after few months.

In fact, an exclusive, extensive and techno legal cyber forensics investigation manual/book has already been written by Praveen Dalal, Managing Partner of Perry4Law and CEO of PTLB. These two manuals/books would cover almost the entire gamut of cyber law, cyber crimes and cyber forensics jurisprudence of India.

Perry4Law and PTLB are also in the process of writing manuals and books in other fields as well. So keep a close watch for the same at this platform and other sites of Perry4Law and PTLB.

We hope Indian government and other stakeholders would find these books/manuals useful and would actively utilise them for effective cyber law and cyber crimes investigations.
