Participants are supposed to 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, as per the plan, is structured to include a day of presentations, panel discussions, and keynote lectures followed by workshops. Participants will be able to interact with national and international business partners, employers, clients, and customers.
