About Course

While talking about internet related crimes we often ignore this fact that we have a statute dealing with various digital offences that are concluded by computer & its various means. This statute is known as “The Information Technology Act, 2000.” The main motive of setting up this act was to cover all the e-transactions & e-crimes & putting them all under the legal purview. The world is moving very quickly & being a netizen you should be aware about it so that you will be able to understand some procedural as well as practical pointers.

The course is a self paced course.
