MeitY's National e-Governance Division recently inked a pact with National Law University's Delhi branch and Bhopal-based National Law Institute University to establish a cyber lab in a bid to boost cyber law, crime investigation, and digital forensics.

In a bid to enhance capacity building for cyber law, crime investigation and digital forensics, the National e-Governance Division recently, signed a pact with National Law University's Delhi branch and Bhopal-based National Law Institute University.

The program aims to enable police officers, state cyber cells, law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and judicial officers to acquire requisite skills to deal with cyber forensics cases efficiently and effectively, confirmed the Ministry of Electronics and IT  in a statement.

According to the statement, each enrolled participant will undergo a practical training session and personal contact program at the designated cyber lab to be set up in the campus of the National Law University (NLU) Delhi for facilitating this course.

"The proposed cyber lab will be equipped with Hybrid architecture, which supports both virtual as well as physical mode of capacity building in the areas of cyberlaw, cybercrime investigation and digital forensics," the statement said.

The proposed lab will house a training room capacity of 25 users and remote connectivity for 25 users each at a given time. Other law schools and universities like National Law School of India University (Bengaluru) and Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law (Patiala) will be also on-boarded in the hub-and-spoke model for future endeavors, the statement said.

"The National e-Governance Division (NeGD) will develop the e-content based on the support received from faculty members. NLIU, Bhopal, being the lead academic partner for the course, will award the PG Diploma Certificate to the participants who successfully complete the course," the statement said.
