Technologies have eased / changed the way of life these days. The phenomenal growth of computer usage, email, internet, social networking sites, mobile etc. has brought the world closer making it a smaller place to live in. However, it has also brought a new threat using computer / technology called ‘Cyber Crime’ in our society. Many people have become victims to hacking, theft, identity theft, malicious software, cyber stalking and child soliciting and abuses. Even, these practices, on the other hand, are grappling with multiplying cyber threats coming from transnational crime groups to terrorist groups. The remedial measures for all such threats could only be to minimize the cyber crimes by imparting awareness to the users.
As a part of ongoing legal awareness program, the Association of Manipuri Diaspora (AMAND), Pune, which is a registered non-profit, non-government community organization formed by Manipuri professionals working in / retired from the Central Government or Maharashtra Government or other reputed Institutions based in and around Pune, has organized a workshop on ‘Cyber Crime and Its Relevant Law’ in association with Symbiosis Ishanya Cultural and Educational Centre (SICEC), Pune to spread awareness amongst people of NE States staying in and around Pune on Sunday, 19th April 2015 at the ELTIS-SIFIL Auditorium, Symbiosis International University, Pune.
