The growth of the internet and the virtual world has resulted in an increase in cybercrime, particularly online harassment of women. According to research, one in every ten women has encountered cyberviolence since the age of fifteen, with incidences increasing during the Covid-19 pandemic. Cybercrime against women is disturbing, and a number of states and international organisations are taking action. The Istanbul Convention outlines provisions for preventing and combatting violence against women committed over the internet. Through several penal law measures, the Budapest Convention addresses online and technology-facilitated violence against women. India has enacted legislation defining the consequences of cyberbullying and cyberstalking. However, the prosecution process remains difficult due to regulations that do not keep up with technological changes and law enforcement officials who lack funding, training, or expertise.
