Best Techno-Legal And Cyber Law Mentorship In India

Education and skills are two different aspects. The ultimate aim of any education is to empower the masses with requisite expertise. An educational system that fails to cater this much needed demand could never produce skilled manpower. India is presently focusing too much upon academic education rather than upon professional and vocational one. This is creating a misbalance between demand and supply of capable workforce on the one hand and declining professional skills on the other.

There is an emergent need to frame a National Policy on ICT skill development in India. This equally applies to all sorts of other non-ICT educational and professional streams as well. It is obvious that skills development had to be made an essential part of the educational framework in India. However it is not an easy task especially in the absence of any National Policy in this regard. The policy must aim at empowering all individuals to enable them to get access to decent employment and to promote inclusive National growth.

Till the Government comes out with suitable ICT skill development policy, the private sector must take the lead. In India we have tremendous potential for ICT skill development by utilising the private sector’s expertise. One such initiative that has been in vogue for long is the “Exclusive Techno-Legal And Cyber Law Mentorship of India”. The initiative titled “Techno-Legal News And Views” intends to be the Premier Techno-Legal News and Views Resource in India by a Collective. A special emphasis has been given to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) News and Views.

To achieve this objective Mr. Praveen Dalal, the leading Techno-Legal ICT, Cyber Security, Cyber Forensics and Cyber Law Specialist of India would act as the “Mentor” of this initiative. It endeavours to provide high quality opinions on cutting edge topics that are not discussed any where else in India.

At the same time this mentorship is also develooping the insight of critical issues like e-governance in india, e-commerce in India, cyber law in India, cyber security in India, cyber forensics in India, e-courts in India, etc. Particularly, this mentorship is very important for getting raw inputs for formulating sutaible policies and strategies regarding “Legal Enablement Of ICT Systems In India”.

The process of mentorship can fill the gap between academic and professional education. However, mentorship can only be at most an enabling mechanism. The Government of India must make it sure that necessary skills are developed at the educational level itself. Of course, mentorships can refine and polish the already acquired skills but they can never substitute the entry level skills. National Policy on ICT skill development in India is the need of the hour.
