We Currently Do Not In Law Have Rights For Our Data Protection: Lalit Panda

Highlighting the lacuna in the current legal framework, Lalit Panda, Senior Resident Fellow, Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy said that there are some provisions in the IT act about certain kind of images and sensitive information, but the idea where our personal information is given separate rights and recognition is important and needed.

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

Digital environment that the pandemic created has further taken over practically every aspect of our lives. All our needs are being met online. Young adults, especially those in schools, are consuming and interacting with data like never before. But we are not just getting from the online world, we are also giving out something vital - information. About us. Without even knowing it.

Cybercrime, which includes everything from theft and embezzlement to data hacking and identity theft, was up 600% as a result of the pandemic. But the vast majority of the teens and young adults are not aware of the perils of the online world.

Issues of data security and privacy are not widely known. The frequent use of digital tools to lure young people into dangerous and compromising situations is not known. The infinite possibilities and types of cybercrime are not known.
