ITERT

Nepal, being a developing country, must think for better security system to be deployed with the implementation of Information system for effective and efficient utilization of the resources. The deployment of e-government system and the back-end network infrastructure deployments are slowly progressing. With these perspectives, keeping organizational information assets secure in today's interconnected computing environment is a true challenge that becomes more difficult with each new IT-based product and each new global IT threat. Most organizations realize that there is no single solution or panacea for securing systems and data; instead a multilayer security strategy is required. One of the layers that many organizations require in their strategy today is the creation of and National IT Emergency Readiness/Response Team, generally called an ITERT also popularly known as Computer Emergency Response Team, CERT.  In the view of the domain of Information and Communication Technology we propose call it ITERT in Nepal.

The NPCERT proposed in Nepal by Department of Information Technology, Training, Research and Development Section as ITERT to provide the following 24x7 services:

  • Publish security alerts
  • Perform Information security Audits and Assurance
  • Conduct Cyber Security Awareness and Training
  • Perform  Analysis and Forensic investigation of cyber incidents
  • Response to cyber security incidents
  • Coordination with global and local agencies towards Cyber crime
