Developing a National Cyber Security Policy for Nepal

Project timeline: 3/13/2015 – 8/7/2023

Over the course of eight years, Mr. Ananda Raj Khanal took the initiative to develop and implement Nepal’s first National Cyber Security Policy. He coordinated with international and national stakeholders, like the International Telecommunication Union and Nepal’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, to create a comprehensive policy. The Cabinet approved this document in August 2023, and Mr. Khanal is pursuing several initiatives to fully implement the policy and raise cyber awareness across government, academia, and the general population.
