As the number of internet users is increasing and technology is becoming a part of our daily lives cybersecurity is gaining more importance with every passing day. Individual and organizations are as vulnerable in cyberspace as in the real world.

After a cybercrime act which the government brought in September 2016, a comprehensive cybersecurity policy framework is on the cards for the government. A consultation process has been started that will involve the opinion of all the stakeholders,  official spokesperson of the Ministry of IT & Telecom confirmed.

“We are going to engage national and international firms for the consultation process to get a better input”, he added. “The purpose of the cybersecurity policy framework is to ensure the safety of the rights of people in the cyberspace”.

IT Ministry plans to organize a full day consultation conference on cybersecurity in the coming month for getting input from the local and international experts on the subject.

Pursuing the similar lines, a delegation from Havalsen, a Turkish IT company called upon Minister of State for IT & Telecom, Ms. Anusha Rahman for sharing their experiences and best practices in the field of cyber governance.
