The arrival of the information age and the expansion of digital revolution from the 1990s brought an entirely unique set of crimes and criminality in the modern world—described as cybercrimes. One of the major policy concerns in almost all countries of the world today is the control and containment of cybercrimes. Cybercrimes challenge the very core of societal growth, security, and governance, and the growth and organization of almost all aspects of modern societies are centered on the use of computers and the internet. The criminal use of the computer and the internet can bring an unprecedented degree of harm and destruction, not just in the progress but also in the very continuity and survival of modern digital civilization. The new brave world of hyper connectivity is bringing a new age of social and cultural disorder, misinformation, confusion, and convulsions. Recent years have seen, in almost all countries of the world, the growth of new laws, regulations, and institutions to secure the internet and save the world from the destructions of cybercrime. In the emerging field of cybersecurity, there is now a compelling need to understand the global landscape of cybersecurity laws and regulations.

Advancements in Global Cyber Security Laws and Regulations focuses on global cybersecurity laws and regulations in some of the major countries and regions including the United States, Europe, India, the Middle East, and the African and Pacific regions. Issues such as global regulations, global regimes, and global governance of the internet are covered alongside legal issues related to digital evidence, computer forensics, and cyber prosecution and convictions. This book is ideally intended for professionals, digital crime experts, security analysts, IT consultants, cybersecurity and cybercrime researchers, leaders, policymakers, government officials, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students interested in how cybersecurity is legally defined and conceptualized and how cybercrimes are prosecuted and adjudicated in different countries and cultures.
