Homeland Security And Civil Liberties In India

Homeland security has assumed tremendous importance all over the world. Homeland security in India is also assuming importance and India is considering improving the same. However, homeland security is a highly specialised and collaborative model.

India has not yet actively considered homeland security. Even projects like CCTNS, Natgrid, modernisation of police force, e-surveillance and lawful interception, etc are poorly formulated and badly implemented.

Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) is the exclusive techno legal institution of India that is providing research, training, legislation making and policy making expertise in India.

It has been providing techno legal research, training, education and policy making in the fields like homeland security, cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, cyber war, cyber espionage, corporate espionage, cyber terrorism, CCTNS, Natgrid, NCTC, etc.

A special effort must be made by Indian government for reconciliation of civil liberties with the national security interests of India. Indian government must keep in mind the pressing requirements of civil liberties protection in cyberspace.

PTLB is managing a techno legal centre for protection of human rights in cyberspace (HRPIC). The main objective of this centre is to provide techno legal research, training and policy making so that homeland security and civil liberties interests can be reconciled.
