To tackle the rising number of cyber and IT crimes in the country, amendments to the law are needed to be done, feel cyber law experts
who gathered here today to attend a cyber crime seminar.

“This is not clear for how long a company has to keep safe its data. Most of the time, organisations delete information of its employees from the Internet after a few years. But if investigations are required into such cases, then to carry out a probe is
not possible,” said Karnika Seth, advocate (Cyber Law).

The Information Technology Act was implemented in 2000 and after that, a few amendments were made to it. However, more of them needed to be done to cope up with the fast changing technology.

“The law doesn’t clarify which electronic signature are valid and which not,” she added.

Justice VS Sirpurkar, Judge of the Supreme Court, said: “We should think over how to stop cyber crime cases.”
