KATHMANDU: The Tech Journos Forum (TJF), an esteemed association of Nepali journalists specializing in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), joined forces with Genese Solution, a leading IT consulting firm headquartered in the UK, to organize a highly informative webinar focused on cybersecurity. The exclusive event, held on Tuesday, aimed to enlighten tech journalists in Nepal about the current state and critical significance of cybersecurity in today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape.

This pivotal workshop provided a platform for engaging in a proactive dialogue on cybersecurity by inviting cybersecurity experts to share their insights. Leading the webinar was Aarohan Godar Thapa, a cybersecurity specialist at Genese Solution, who delved into various facets of cybersecurity.

Thapa discussed recent cyberattack incidents in Nepal, government compliance guidelines, security awareness challenges, and more. He provided valuable insights into the intricate challenges and potential solutions within the realm of cybersecurity.

A central theme highlighted throughout the webinar was the importance of adopting a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity, addressing people, processes, and technology-related issues.
