Kathmandu, May 17: Information Security Response Team Nepal (NPCERT) will be hosting a Global Cyber Security Summit (GCSS) 2018 on July 27 and 28 with the theme “Building Global Alliance for Cyber Resilience“.

There is no gainsaying that the security status of cyberworld in Nepal is very critical. Websites of various private and public websites of the different organization are being hacked, the large-scale financial attacks, social media related cyber crimes like fake profile marketing and cyber heist are all consequences of a weak security posture that are publicly visible. But, these are only a small part of the overall security statistics. Many poor configurations that result in these visible impacts go unnoticed until it leads to the worst outcome.
Primary target audiences of the summit are IT professionals, security experts, government employees, enterprise businessmen, students from different sectors, banking sector personnel and other members interested to the topic. Participants will get ample time to share experiences and challenges with regard to Cybersecurity in their respective countries, along with two days of intense engagement on technology and security related issues. The summit is an initiative to make people aware of information security in order to establish a strong security posture in Nepal.
The summit will be structured to include a day of presentations, panel discussions, and keynote lectures followed by workshops. Participants can interact with national and international business partners, employers, clients and customers.
