Cyber forensics in India has started gaining momentum. In a similar development, electronic discovery in India (e-discovery in India) has also attracted the attention of Indian community. With the recent interim order of the Supreme Court of India, both litigation and non litigation related legal and para legal services in India can be now practiced by advocates enrolled under the advocate Act, 1961 alone.
This means that even cyber forensics services in India and e-discovery services in India cannot be practices by foreign law firms, non Indian advocates based LPO/KPOs, e-discovery and cyber forensics practitioners, chartered accountants firms, etc. Naturally, the demand for cyber forensics and e-discovery professionals would increase in India.
To meet the growing demands of e-discovery and cyber forensics in India, we need to ensure techno legal skills development in India. At Perry4Law and Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) we are trying to fill this gap. PTLB provides basic level techno legal trainings and courses through its techno legal e-learning platform. Similarly, Perry4Law Techno Legal ICT Training Centre (PTLITC) provides domain specific and highly specialised techno legal courses and trainings.
Perry4Law, PTLB and PTLITC are also managing the exclusive techno legal cyber forensics research and training centre of India. More details of the trainings and courses of our platforms are available at PTLB Blog. We are also managing the exclusive techno legal online cyber forensics research centre of India (CFRCI).
We are also managing a repository for cyber forensics software in India that is primarily based upon open source culture. The cyber forensics software repository of Perry4Law, PTLB and PTLITC consists of world renowned cyber forensics tools and software. Further, software for cyber security, e-discovery, reverse malware analysis, anti root kits and malware, network security, wireless security, intrusion detection and prevention, etc are also available.
These software and tools are used for providing basic and domain specific trainings and courses of PTLB and PTLITC. For basic level cyber forensics research and training, we use simple and light weight tools and software. For highly specialised trainings and courses we use world renowned open source tools. We hope our initiative would be useful for all concerned.
