Cyber-Crimes and Law

Michael J. Daugherty, Founder and CEO of LabMD based in United States, participates in Risk Roundup to discuss “Cyber Crimes and Law”.


Today, across nations, the most successful criminals are those that can hide behind the anonymity that the cyberspace offers, and individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) are far more likely to be victimized in cyberspace than in geospace. As a result, the threat posed by cyber-crimes is getting bigger than ever. With uncountable annual cyber-attacks, cyber-crime is a real threat to anyone using computers, smartphones, tablets, internet of things and other gadgets that are connected to the internet.

The reality today is that, every single day, either somebody’s identity is stolen, or someone’s confidential data is stolen, and the victim count to financial and non-financial loss because of cyber-crime keeps growing and growing. Understandably, keeping up with the growing complexity of the nature of cyber-crimes is a challenge facing not only individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA), but also the legal community.

It is important to evaluate this further:

  • What complex security challenges are emerging because of cyberspace?
  • How do emerging technologies bring unwanted growth of the criminal industry?
  • How can we protect ourselves effectively in cyberspace, geospace and space?
  • Will today’s cyber-technology and cyber-crimes trigger the breakdown in the rule of law?
  • What does the introduction of any new transformative technology in cyberspace mean for cyber-crimes and law?
  • How are courts handling these complex issues emerging because of cyberspace?
  • What can the victims of cyber-crime do to prevent the security challenges their organization
  • What are the parameters of how any organization security can and cannot be managed today?
  • What is working and what is not working?
  • What are the emerging trends of cyber regulations, and cyber Law?
  • What major challenges Cyberlaw faces?


As cyber criminals are technologically more experienced and educated than the cyber victims, it is important to understand cyberspace, cyber technologies and cyber security. Time is now to talk about “Cyber Crimes and Law”!

About the Host of Risk Roundup
Jayshree Pandya (née Bhatt) is a visionary leader, who is working passionately with imagination, insight and boldness to achieve Global Peace through Risk Management. It is her strong belief that collaboration within, between and across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) will be mutually beneficial to all—for not only in the identification and understanding of critical risks facing one nation, but also for managing the interconnected and interdependent risks facing all nations. She calls on nations to build a shared sense of identity and purpose, for how the Security Centric Integrated Cyberspace, Geospace and Space Risk Management framework is structured will determine the survival and success of nations in the Digital Global Age. She sees the big picture, thinks strategically and works with the power of intentionality and alignment for a higher purpose—for her eyes are not just on the near at hand but on the future of humanity!

At Risk Group, Jayshree is driving the thought leadership on “Strategic Security Risk Intelligence”! She believes that Cyberspace, Geospace or Space (CGS) cannot be secured if NGIOA works in silo within and across its geographical boundaries. As security requires an integrated NGIOA approach with a common language, she has recently launched Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space- Security Risk Research Centers that will merge the boundaries of Geo-Security, Cyber-Security and Space-Security.

In 2015, Jayshree launched “Risk Roundup” an Integrated Cyber-Security, Geo-Security and Space-Security Risk Dialogue. Risk Roundup Webcast/Podcast are available on YouTube, iTunes, Google Play, Risk Group website, and professional social media.

Jayshree’s inaugural book, The Global Age: NGIOA @ Risk, was published by Springer in 2012.

About Risk Roundup

Risk Roundup: Webcast/Podcast, a global initiative launched by Risk Group, is an integrated cyberspace, geospace, and space (CGS) security risk dialogue for individuals and entities across nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA). Risk Roundup is directly trying to promote and enhance CGS risk intelligence by collective participation of decision makers from across NGIOA.

Risk Roundup is released in both audio (Podcast) and video (Webcast) format and is available for subscription at (Risk Group WebsiteiTunesGoogle PlayStitcher RadioAndroid, and Risk Group Professional Social Media).

About Risk Group

Risk Group is an integrated cyberspace, geospace and space (CGS) security risk research organization. Risk Group is on a mission to epitomize collective risk intelligence of nations: its government, industries, organizations and academia (NGIOA) as the synergistic intersection among independent as well as interconnected and interdependent CGS security risks to help achieve an effective process for better collective security risk intelligence, management and governance than silo and fragmented security risk approach that we have across nations today. Risk Group is determined to engage the collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability to manage CGS security risks—risks impacting individuals and entities across NGIOA. Having a collective NGIOA risk intelligence capability will be transformative for not only achieving CGS security but also global peace.

Risk Group believes that risk management, security and peace walk together hand in hand. Though security is related to management of threats and peace to the management of conflict, risk management is related to management of security vulnerabilities as well as management of conflict, and it is not possible to conceive any one of the three without the existence of the other two. All three concepts feed into each other. Risk Group believes that the security we build for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for everyone across nations. Tradition becomes our security-so if we build a culture of managing risks effectively it will lead us to security and security will lead us to peace!
