In the opening remarks by Prof. Praveen Gupta, Director, LBSIM said Internet has become an integral part of human life, it helps in boosting economy, business, but we must increase awareness about cybercrime.

The inaugural session was delivered by Hon’ble Justice Pratibha M. Singh, Judge High Court, Delhi. While delivering the session Justice Pratibha M. Singh said, cybercrime has increased in several cases and each woman needs to know the basics of cyberlaw and ethics. The major problems faced by the woman against cybercrime are Cyberbullying, Cyberstalking, morphing, sextortion merely in the age- group (16-30 yr) on social media. She further added, every woman has the right to complain against any cybercrime faced by them in cyber cells present in every Police station, and not to create any communication gap while suffering any types of bullying or stalking on social media. Our technology is faster and rapid than before, any complaints against cybercrime are taken strictly. She also advised the modern generation of women to know the basic Cyber laws and take the help of NGOs too, if they are not willing to go Police station due to society and family shyness and stigma.
