Law implementation seems to be a little-explored phenomenon, despite the reality that it has become abundantly obvious that law implementation is influenced by various factors prevalent in the country, and such factors can influence and hinder potential legislative implementation. This study examines a few of the key factors that influence cybersecurity law implementation in emerging economies such as Pakistan. Managers from banking and IT firms were surveyed about the law's implementation factors that could affect its implementation. The prominence of corruption, which is a significant obstacle to cybersecurity law implementation, appeared to be the most influencing factor in Pakistan. The findings from a sample of 172 respondents employing IBM SPSS 23.0 revealed that corruption, discrimination, illicit conduct, and ambiguity appeared to have a significant negative influence on cybersecurity law implementation, whereas expertise and public confidence emerged to have a significant positive influence on the implementation of cybersecurity laws in Pakistan.
