Cyber Law – Legal Procedures

Cyber law deals with the Internet, cyberspace, and their respective legal issues. Cyber law covers a broad area, encompassing several subtopics including freedom of expression, access to and usage of the Internet, online privacy, communications, email, websites, intellectual property, hardware and software, such as data storage devices. It is also referred to as the Law of the Internet.

Cyber law is created to help protect people, businesses, and organizations on the Internet from malicious actions on the Internet, known as cyber-attacks, and help maintain order.

Cyber laws vary according to the country and jurisdiction and restitution ranges from fines to imprisonment. Enforcement remains challenging.
