To put in common man’s language, Internet is a global network of computers; all of them speak same language. The real power of Internet is that it is available to anyone with a computer and a telephone. As Internet is proliferating like a web through out the globe, so will the complexity of the cyber laws, many countries have already laid down cyber laws including India. Security is the single biggest obstacle for the growth of e‐commerce. The Internet security is one of the most unfolded topic for the business environment. Every industry is demanding the Internet security based policies. The growing danger from crimes committed against computers, or against information on computers, is beginning to claim attention in national capitals. In most countries around the world, however, existing laws are likely to be unenforceable against such crimes. This lack of legal protection means that businesses and governments must rely solely on technical measures to protect themselves from those who would steal, deny access to, or destroy valuable information. Self‐protection, while essential, is not sufficient to make cyberspace a safe place to conduct business. National governments should examine the current statutes to determine whether laws are sufficient to combat all kinds of crimes.
