But at the same time we are also witnessing the rapid growth of cyber crimes. We often came across a person who has been a victim of cyber crime. Hacking and online frauds are the most common attacks we hear today as well as we also know that serious crimes like cyber squatting, cyber stalking and cyber terrorism are taking place too.

I will discuss that how these crimes happen and what are the remedies available against them in India.
