Status of Cyber Crime
Back in 1990, less than 100,000 people were able to log on to the Internet worldwide. Now around 500 million people are using the net around the globe.
UK has the largest number of infected computers in the world followed by the US and China.
The US is the leading source country for attacks. China is second and Germany is third.
In India :
During 2003, a total of 411 cases were registered under IPC Sections as compared to 738 such cases during 2002 thereby reporting a significant decline of 44 percent in 2003 over 2002.
A total of 475 persons were arrested in the country for Cyber Crimes under IPC during 2003.
The age-wise profile of the arrested persons showed that 45 percent were in the age-group of 30-45 years, 28.5 percent of the offenders were in the age-group of 45-60 years and 11 offenders were aged 60 years and above.
Above figures doesn't mean that cyber crime is declining in India , the fact is that people in our country do not report cyber crimes for the following reasons:
i)They don't want to face harassment by the police.
ii)The fear of bad publicity which could hurt their reputation in society. Also,
iii)It becomes extremely difficult to convince the police to register any cybercrime, because of lack of awareness about cybercrimes and their registration and handling by the police.
A recent survey indicates that for every 500 cybercrime incidents that take place, only 50 are reported to the police and out of that only one is actually registered.
These figures indicate how difficult it is to convince the police to register a cybercrime.
The establishment of cybercrime cells in different parts of the country was expected to boost cybercrime reporting and prosecution. However, these cells haven't quite kept up with expectations.
we must control the cyber crime problem and make the Internet a safe place for its users.
