Cyber privacy is a disputed and unsettled issue in legal jurisprudence around the globe. The power of the new slogan, termed ‘Information Technology,’ has engulfed the present cosmos in the modern era. Individual privacy has risen to the forefront of the Jurisprudential conscience as a result of the sempiternity of knowledge in the midst of the ‘Information and Communication Technology Revolution.’ Even while the general population lives and transacts as effortlessly online as they do offline, people are not regulated or held by any standards in cyberspace. As more of our regular lifestyle shift online, aided in large part by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and quickly evolving technology, we must consider what cyber-protections we have readily accessible and the corresponding standards of protection of our valuable data. It is questionable to what extent residents of democratic countries would be prepared to provide as well as at the same time protect sensitive information. However, it is the legal domain’s job to develop an appropriate policy for protecting online privacy from cyber spying, cyberstalking, corporate espionage, devastating cyber-attacks, and website defacement.

As a corollary, the researcher in this research paper tries to find out likely outcomes to assess those things that can be useful for our legislature to get an opportunity to construct a concrete base for setting standards, enacting guidelines, and conducting further research related to the evolving technology era’s possible problems and solutions regarding right to privacy. Moreover, this research paper places reliance on the Constitutional Right to Privacy vis-à-vis the arena of cyberspace.
