After teaching Cyber Laws and ITA 2000 for a long long time, Naavi had moved his attention to teaching “Privacy and Data Protection” because that was the need of the hour.
The market has however come around to realize while studying the upcoming Personal Data Protection Act that it is afterall an extension of ITA 2000/8 and replacement of one aspect of our current Information Technology Act.
Simultaneously the market is realizing that even if the passage of the Personal Data Protection Bill 2019 can be held up, the Section 43A of ITA 2000/8 or the Section 72A or Section 67C or Sections 69,69A,69B, 70 B or Sections 85 and 79 all remain effective today and most of them will continue to remain effective even after PDPA 2020 comes into existence.
Hence the need to know Cyber Law and IT Act has got rejuvenated.
To satisfy this demand, Naavi is conducting two 12 hour courses in the next 10 days. One course will be over the week ends and will be for the members of a CISO/CTO group. The second would be a week day course for more law oriented persons.
The Core coverage would be ITA 2008 but the emphasis could be different. While the CTO’s/CISOs will receive the information security perspective of ITA 2000/8, the other group will receive a little more legal perspective.
I hope both segments will be satisfied with what is on offer.
Ofcourse the Course has to refer to some Case studies, Cyber Crimes, Adjudication, the Digital and Electronic Signatures, Section 43A obligations of Reasonable Security or Due diligence concept under Section 79 and the Evidentiary aspects of Section 65B.
After the lock down is lifted fully, neither the participants nor me may have the same time to conduct such programs and therefore these could be unique occasions to revisit ITA 2000/8 at a time when the PDPA 2020 is likely to occupy our mind space for the immediate future.
The details of the week day batch is available below.
Yes… It is a paid course and the payment link is here
The participants of this Course will get copies of three e-Books, one on Cyber Crimes, one on Electronic Signatures and one on Section 65B.
I invite all interested Advocates and IT personnel to take advantage of this knowledge boosting sessions.
The focus of this program is different from the Classical approach and adopt a Cyber Jurisprudent’s approach…
We will focus on this is what the law says…This was the legislative intent… Perhaps this is the best interpretation…
Even when there is a judicial verdict, we shall analyze it rather than accepting it in blind faith.
I believe that this approach will help us improve our collective understanding of the law and we all will be contributing to the development of Cyber Jurisprudence.
P.S.: Participants would receive participation certificate from Cyber law college.
