Computer forensics is a highly specialised field that requires techno legal expertise. Computer forensics is a growing field world over and India is also trying to use computer forensics for its legal and judicial purposes.
However, computer forensics in India is still at nascent stage and it may take many more years before computer forensics can actually be used in India. Praveen Dalal, noted techno legal and cyber forensics specialist of India, has already written an exclusive book on techno legal aspects of cyber forensics in India. This book may go a long way in bringing actual implementation of cyber forensics in India.
At the same time we need good techno legal training and courses on computer forensics in India. India has a single techno legal cyber forensics research, training and educational institution. It is managed by Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB). The centre is providing techno legal cyber forensics education, trainings and course in India.
Registration for online education and trainings in the field of cyber forensics and other techno legal courses of PTLB can be done through its online platform. Application form for the enrollment to various courses, internships and trainings can be downloaded from here and more details about the courses of PTLB can be found here.
Computer forensics trainings are required to be undertaken by police officers, public prosecutors, lawyers, judges, etc in India. Initially, the basic level computer forensics training is enough that can subsequently be enhanced to more specialised training.
PTLB also exclusively offers online cyber law and computer forensics training to judges in India and abroad as well. This way the judiciary, especially subordinate judiciary, of India can be greatly benefited. Let us hope, that judges and lawyers in India would avail these exclusive and specialised courses and trainings of PTLB as soon as possible.
