International Cooperation Is Required For Effective Global Cyber Security

Global Cyber Security Cooperation

Technology and law are not growing in the same proportion as they were required to do. Technology has crossed not only the territorial boundaries of various countries but also the limits of earth itself in the form of space technologies. Just like cyber law even the space law has not been able to catch up with the technological advances. This can be managed if the technology is used for non military and benign causes. However, the growing interference and control of military and intelligence agencies have totally spoiled the once peaceful cyberspace and Internet. If this is  not enough countries are openly and shamelessly encouraging state hacking, cyber espionage and legal immunity backed cyber armies. Their sole aim is to to destabilise the electronic systems and critical infrastructures dependent upon such systems of adversary nations and stakeholders.

At this stage it is the responsibility of United Nations to step in and draft suitable and techno legal global treaties in fields like cyber law, cyber security, space law, geoengineering, etc. Unfortunately, the UN has not been able to do so in any of the above mentioned and other related fields. As a result, countries have drafted their own draconian laws that have been gladly supported by their apex courts. So there is a complete chaos at the international level and countries are now trying to regulate and eavesdrop their territorial portions of cyberspace.

The matter is not ended here. Countries, including India, are also forcing draconian tech like Aadhaar, facial recognition, social grading systems, etc to suppress civil liberties of citizens around the world. With the judiciary around the world succumbing to this Orwellian hunger of the government, there is little hope for the global netizens except to the extent protected by software and tools created by open source community to ensure civil liberties protection in cyberspace. There are some good civil liberties organisation as well that are fighting in respective jurisdictions but a global force to fight back against Orwellian ventures of various governments is still missing.

When nations have no interest to protect civil liberties in cyberspace, it becomes of paramount importance that UN and other international organisations must step in. We are at the brink of precipice and UN and other international organisations must understand the gravity of the situation. We need every possible help from any possible means, whether public or private. We need the brave open  source community to stand up against this Orwellian and insecure cyberspace that was neither intended nor designed by the founding fathers of cyberspace.

No matter howsoever little an initiative may be it is worth exploring and pursuing if it strengthens civil liberties protection in cyberspace and make it robust, resilient and cyber secure. We at Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) have taken few small steps in this direction. For instance, we have launched the exclusive techno legal Centre of Excellence for Protection of Human Rights in Cyberspace (CEPHRC). It has been working to strengthen civil liberties and human rights protection in cyberspace. Similarly, we have recently launched world’s first techno legal TeleLaw Project  that is working to minimise the impact of conflict of laws in cyberspace on the one hand and to help in harmonisation of international laws in fields like cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, e-discovery, artificial intelligence, machine learning, encryption, crypto currency, e-commerce, international trade, etc on the other. There are other techno legal projects of P4LO, TeleLaw and PTLB Projects that would make this entire exercise holistic, comprehensive and global in nature.

However, an international cooperation is required for effective global cyber security environment and we need help of other stakeholders in this regard. We are also willing to help other stakeholders in this regard if they need our help. International trade in goods and services is severely impacted if we allow this sort of chaos to continue. There must be a trust in global digital services and if companies and individuals are incessantly put under surveillance and cyber attacks without any legal accountability and with judicial apathy, stakeholders would loose confidence in international digital trade. The first thing that we must do is to remove the hold of global military and intelligence agencies from cyberspace and outer space. Instead of militarisation we must focus upon commercialisation of cyberspace and outer space.

For too long international organisations like UN, WTO, NATO, etc have kept a mum but this is high time to speak and govern the cyberspace and outer space. We at TeleLaw are always open to help in bringing harmonisation of international laws in fields like cyber law, cyber security, international trade, space law, AI, etc. If UN and other organisations continue to remain moot spectators, cyberspace and civil liberties would be compromised beyond repair and remedy. Wake up and let us reclaim our cyberspace and outer space for the common good of mankind and this universe.

Global Cyber Security Legal And Regulatory Compliance Is Now Just A Click Away

Cyber Security Law

Cyber law and cyber security related legal and regulatory compliance are very difficult to manage. This is more so in the contemporary times of artificial intelligence and quantum computing. A few years back managing cyber security related legal and regulatory compliance was still a manageable task but now it has become too complicated to manage. This is so because the dimensions of cyber law and cyber security have become so wide and unpredictable that one solution for all situation cannot be applied. We have to use customised and situation specific solution for every case.

The problem has become so complicated because state actors have now openly started interfering in the affairs and sovereignty of other nations. From rigging elections to manipulating public opinion to spreading rumours and fake news, cyberspace has clearly become an unruly and uncontrollable world. Nations are trying to dominate cyberspace and in the absence of uniform and harmonised international cyber law and cyber security treaties, they are trying to control their portion of the cyberspace. So far the success in this regard is partial but state hacking and cyber warfare would further fuel the race to control cyberspace in a fragmented manner.

The global legal environment regarding cyber law and cyber security is so fast changing that it has become next to impossible for lawyers, law firms and companies to get a grip over the same. That is the reason why we launched the world’s first techno legal portal TeleLaw that is helping global stakeholders to comply with local and global cyber law and cyber security norms. We are also helping them to formulate effective techno legal policies for their respective organisation so that interest of all stakeholders are best safeguarded.

Organisations world over are now well aware that cyber breaches and cyber attacks can cause huge loss and damage to them in terms of money and reputation. Ransomware are openly targeting companies and encrypting their data that cannot be decrypted till ransom is paid. Malware and zero day exploits are compromising the systems of not only private companies but even governments across the world. Critical infrastructures are continuously targeted in a stealth manner and till the time they are discovered, damage is already done.

Our techno legal projects and startups are trying to tackle these challenges and while doing so we are trying to help global stakeholders. If you need our techno legal help, please contact us and we would together make your cyber law and cyber security compliance easier and compliant as per applicable laws.

PTLB Projects Is Constituting A Techno Legal And Global Cyber Security Workforce

Global Cyber Security Workforce

Cyber security is no more a requirement but it has become a necessity. However, the shades of cyber security have totally changed in the recent times due to the modern technologies like artificial intelligence, internet of things (IoT), machine learning, data analysis, quantum computing and many more secret military and non military projects world over. Add to it the concepts of automation industry, state hacking, cyber warfare, algorithmic warfare, cyber terrorism, etc and one can see what type of cyber security we need for the coming years.

Besides sophistication, we are also heading for a techno legal regime at global level. Neither technology nor law alone can handle modern day cyber law and cyber security requirements. We have more than 17 years of experience in techno legal fields like cyber law and cyber security. So we are in a position to appreciate both technology and legal aspects of cyber security.

However, we cannot manage this complicated field alone and that is why we have been inviting partnership and collaboration with global stakeholders. We are already in talk with many cyber security specialists and many of them have already joined our social media groups and accounts in one form or another.

We have recently announced that we would make our projects comprehensive, holistic and integrated in nature. So our legal tech, edu tech and tech law projects are working in collaboration and coordination with each other. We are combining our online dispute resolution (ODR), online skills development, online techno legal services project like TeleLaw, etc so that the most comprehensive techno legal services can be provided under a single online portal.

Through this post we once again invite cyber security professionals from around the world to be part of our ODR, skills development, techno legal services and other projects. If you are a cyber security professional, you can explore and analyse our techno legal projects and can collaborate with us in any or all of our projects. The choice is upto you and we would be happy to accommodate you and your expertise for our global projects.

Being a professional you must be aware that we are bound by many non disclosure commitments that we have made to our partners. These commitments have been given by us so that the interest of our partners can be best safeguarded. Sufficient is to say that we are exploring and testing latest technology in those fields that very few must have contemplated. Few of our projects are in areas that are totally new and if our projects are successful in scaling them up, they would be path breaking and create history in the international law fields.

We recently enacted two legal entities named PTLB Projects LLP and TeleLaw Private Limited. Both of them have been recognised as startups by both DPIIT and MeitY. So our techno legal projects and the legal entities supporting them have already been endorsed and recognised as valuable startups by Indian government. This means that there would not be any angel tax for the investors providing seed funding, angel investment, etc to our techno legal projects. There are many regulatory and taxation benefits too that would help our partners and investors.

So if you wish to create history and want to be part of something wonderful. contact us and let us together create a unique and global techno legal system.
