Some Facts About CRAT

There is an urgent need of spreading awareness about cyber law of India. Indian information technology act 2000 (IT Act 2000) carries the cyber law of India. Although it has many wide ramifications yet public at large is not aware about even the most basic ones.

For instance, not much of public is aware about CRAT. It is an important part of cyber disputes adjudication but by and large is still not very active. Cyber law expert Praveen Dalal believes that CRAT needs to take more initiatives to spread public awareness and to start with it must have its own website.

CRAT is presently engaged in spreading awareness among adjudicating officers of various states and this is a good sign, says Dalal.


Awareness Of Cyber Law In India

Cyber law of India is incorporated in the information technology act, 2000 (IT Act 2000) of India. Although the IT Act 2000 was enacted in the year 2000 yet it has to catch the speed to be effective in India. Lawyers, judges, police officers, etc need to update themselves with the nitty-gritty of cyber law.

According to Praveen Dalal, the leading cyber law expert of India, one area that requires special attention is the cyber law awareness in India. Presently, there is absence of cyber law awareness in India. For instance, very few people and organisations are aware that we have CRAT to adjudicate upon disputes arising out of IT Act, 2000. We have launched a platform for cyber law awareness as well as spreading words about CRAT, informs Dalal.

CRAT needs to take pro active steps to spread awareness about cyber law as well as adjudicating mechanisms arising out of the same.


Techno-Legal Cyber Security Centre Of India

Cyber security in India must be a part of national policy making, says Praveen Dalal founder of cyber security centre of India.

Cyber security is an area that requires immediate attention by Indian government. Till now there is a dearth of cyber security professionals in India. The position is even worst when it comes to techno-legal cyber security expertise.

The result is very obvious. The Parliament of India is unable to incorporate the cyber security requirements in the Indian laws in the absence of techno-legal expertise. Thanks to the first and exclusive techno-legal cyber security centre of India now the Parliament of India can enact suitable techno-legal cyber security related provisions. Founded by Praveen Dalal, the leading techno-legal expert of India, it is the most comprehensive as well as holistic cyber security imitative of India.

The cyber security centre is covering areas like cyber war, cyber terrorism, cyber espionage, critical ICT infrastructure protection (CIIP), cyber forensics, etc. Till now this sort of initiative is not only unique in India but also carried out by very few individuals or organisations.
