Cyber Security Seminar


On 18 September 2015 ICMS held a Cyber Security Seminar in conjunction with Clean Perspectives and Rooster Logic.

Program Background:

Nepal has become a laggard in economic development not because her people keep away from hard work and efforts but owing to a variety of factors including its difficult terrain, land-locked status, low level of technological development, and a small domestic market.  In spite of these hardships Nepal, as most developing countries, is progressing quite well in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT).  Political leaders are stressing on establishment of E-governance for transparency and good governance, business leaders are making efforts to make their buisnesses competitive and efficient.  IT is making inroads in Nepal's governance; be it government, private sector or social associated with this technology.  Concerned with possible problems that may upset Nepal's stability, Nepal's regulatory bodies such as Nepal Rastra Bank, Department of IT, and Central Investigation Bureau are trying hard to work with secure IT systems that alone can check any untoward incident.  Possible breach of confidential information and data by hackers and other rogues is common place.  IT security thus assumes utmost importance not only for preventing possible theft of sensitive information but also ensuring that important information is neither misused nor tampered with.
