NIF (Nepal Internet Foundation) is a research and development forum that supports and perform technical and geographical researches in context of Nepal to build up the reach of internet and its objectives with in the country. NIF sets an objective contributing towards the transformation of the society to overcome the challenges of digitalization in Nepal. The core values of the foundation sets on prioritization and implementation of better policies, cyber laws and importance of the internet towards society. Our goal is to ensure that the use of internet shall be used with liberties in a secure environment and ease accessibility, supported by the laws and constitution of Nepal. We envision a society where the people are empowered by the use of internet and each individual regardless of the country, location, language, age or income shall be able to communicate and collaborate with each other to improve their lives and community. The Nepal Internet Foundation supports the concepts and ideas to mitigate the gap that occurs towards content, research and technology in favor of internet & communication among people. The foundation works closely with individuals, communities, government, NGO’s, INGO’s and private sector to leverage the potential use of internet and communication among us.

Along with the reach of opportunity towards internet usage and devices being connected to the internet services, there comes security challenges. What is considered secure today may not be tomorrow, NIF is concerned about the security of the devices and user privacy along with the IoT (Internet of Things). Internet devices rely on the data and networks of various provenance which cannot be considered safe in any manner and is a top concern of the executives and is imperative that technology providers, system adapters and users work together for the security of the data confidentiality, integrity and availability. Despite of the growth of internet usage in Nepal in past years, still the internet services are far from the reach of people from remote areas of Nepal and is apparent that there is no such organization to address full scope of challenges in preventing all individuals from leveraging internet as a tool for empowerment to the society. NIF aids on providing the advantage and scope of the internet and it’s usages among people with implementation of data protection regulations and users privacy.
The internet and new technologies will continue to redefine the boundaries of law, data privacy and protection. Nepal Internet Foundation analyzes these boundaries to make the reach of internet and its usages with proper regulations and supporting data regulation acts with in the country.
