The Ministry of Transport and Communications also released the cybersecurity policy in March 2023 with he approval of the Union Government and distributed it to the Union-level organizations, ministries, and region and state governments.
Moreover, the cybersecurity policy contains seven objectives and five frameworks which are added by the relevant ministries and representatives based on the fundamental facts set by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). It should issue policies, laws, procedures and instructions for cybersecurity to build a safe and stable cyberspace and set strategic facts to draft set up, and promote human resource and cybersecurity-related assistance and technologies, he said.
