Cyber law is an ever-evolving field that is becoming increasingly important. This is especially true in today’s world, where almost every aspect of our lives relies on digital technology. The intersection of law, technology, and governance has created a unique set of challenges, making it crucial for individuals to gain expertise in cyber law. In this book, we aim to provide valuable legal and policy insights into Malaysian cyber laws, starting by showcasing the international context and then to assessing Malaysian development from the legislative and judicial perspectives and also the administrative measures taken. Where applicable, references to international treaties and foreign laws and cases are also made and such sources are discussed. The book starts by introducing the concept of law in the context of the information society and tracing the development of the Internet and digital ecosystem. Following this, the book explores fundamental legal issues, such as the regulability of the Internet, jurisdictional issues and the relationship between the Internet and human rights, as well as the content regulations. The book then analyses various legal topics, including digital privacy, personal data protection, cybercrimes and e-commerce laws. Additionally, the book addresses emerging issues, such as multi-stakeholder platform governance and the emergence of blockchain, digital payment systems and artificial intelligence. Furthermore, the book offers legal insights into the emerging cybersecurity law and the protection of critical information infrastructure in Malaysia.
