Cybersecurity now has come a long way. Data breaches and security-related problems have become a big issue with the increasing threats. Nepal is not safe either with the alarming and increasing risks. The early reported cybercrime incidents in Nepal highlight the emerging challenges of online security.
Although we do not know the first incident, one case in July 2013 involved a young woman who fell victim to online fraud while booking an airline ticket, resulting in a significant financial loss. Another incident occurred on October 7, 2014, when cyberbullying was officially documented at the Kathmandu School of Law. In 2016, Nepal Police arrested an 18-year-old individual operating under the pseudonym Anonymous #Opnep for hacking into government websites, including Nepal Telecom and the National Tuberculosis Centre.
Ever since the rise in these threats and problems, many cybersecurity companies have flourished in Nepal to tackle the issues. Some of the cybersecurity companies have even reached the global stage and ranking.
So today we have brought the six best cybersecurity companies in Nepal.
