With a view to introduce a draft encryption policy, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has reached out to stakeholders to help contribute to its second iteration. The first draft was released in late 2015, but withdrawn subsequently due to concerns raised by civil society and the private sector.

The consultation will be divided into two segments: an open house and a panel discussion with high-level government representatives, including Dr. Gulshan Rai, the National Cyber Security Coordinator. You are invited to join both sessions (starting 1030 hrs), and help shape the discussions around this crucial subject. event is invitation only
