Decoding Pakistan’s Cyber Crime Law: What You Need to Know

In today’s digital age, the misuse of technology is a grave concern. To combat this, Pakistan enacted the Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act (PECA) in 2016. It aims to prevent cybercrimes and provide a legal framework for investigation, prosecution, and trial of such offenses.

PECA covers a range of offenses, from unauthorized access to information systems and data damage, to electronic fraud, cyber terrorism, and online harassment. The punishments range from fines to imprisonment, depending on the severity of the crime.

However, the legislation has raised concerns about misuse and infringement of citizens’ rights to freedom of speech and privacy. Therefore, it’s crucial to understand your rights and obligations under this law.
