Concept Note

Today with the confluence of Law and technology, digitization has massively increased. Cyberspace is presenting far more new distinctive challenges, issues and perspectives. This advancement holds particular importance for developing countries as the world has already entered into the golden age of digital revolution and with influence of technology on law in its ambit, focus, impact and frequency,
there are number of crucial issues concerning the digital environment and their regulations that are throwing up contentious issues by the members of digital stakeholder community. Despite the potential benefits, this revolution also poses new types of risks. The lack of security standards in the business models, misuse of personal data, electronic frauds, and cybercrimes are among the major vulnerabilities of the new digital era.

At the center of the law and policy debate is how this new area of technology should be regulated and supervised. This FDP aims to act as a catalyst for discussions on the key aspects of Cyberspace, and its future trends and impacts, including legal, ethical, social, policy and regulatory issues thereof and present an integrated, holistic and strategic view of the issues therein, whilst recognizing that there is an urgent need for effective global cooperation on cyber issues amongst all stakeholders. The experts in the FDP will deliberate on contemporary challenges posed by technological advancement in laws.
