It is not new news to know about the Nepali website( governmental or non-governmental) getting defaced time and again with notorious hackers. This scenario shows how vulnerable the IT sectors are. A few months back, Pravu Bank, Krishi Bikash Bank, and other several banks came under the attack. Due to which all banks suspend the ATM service for a while.
Hacking or say breaching the website through the bugs is not a new thing, it has been occurring time and again. There is nothing such as a hack-proof system, it is just a matter of time and persistence. However, to deal with it we also need to timely update our system, look for security loopholes, and close it. Security audits should be done on a regular basis to maintain security.
Recently, some notorious Indian hackers had defaced the Nepalese organization owned website and few of the targets were governmental sites too. As we are moving in the digital era, we are depending upon technology to store the data and information. There are very sensitive and secretive data that the government puts on digital platforms. So, this is very crucial to maintain security so that hackers could not access those data easily.
With these things in mind, the Department of Information and Technology has published a basic guideline that every organization has to follow to secure their data digitally and making it hard for the hackers to access those data.
