The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has experienced a need for powerful cyber security, including problems with hackers targeting the people of Afghanistan. Within this reasoning, Afghanistan has discovered a few difficulties and issues that Afghanistan must address. Hackers can use information and communications technology (ICT) to access outside sourced websites to target the people of Afghanistan, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more. The hackers have gained a level of anonymity from our government, and Afghanistan does not possess the resources to deal with the crimes individually. Afghanistan feels no need for violent action but believes gaining sponsors would be essential help in establishing a cyber security defense.

Afghanistan is experiencing a deficit in technology. According to ‘Wafa, Zmarialai. “Cyber Security in Afghanistan.” Unipath, 20 Aug. 2015’: “Before 2001, Afghanistan had less than 15,000 local landlines. Since then, Afghanistan funded money into ICTs and internet service providers (ISP). ICTs and ISPs allowed people to make international phone calls. Afghanistan now has 55 ISPs across our nation.” With this new technology, Afghanistan provided 17.6% of our country’s population access to the internet. The development of technology has strengthened our country’s ability to deal with national threats and to work with international security. Despite there being much access internationally through the internet, Afghanistan’s ability to control and traffic the information being transferred is near impossible. Our country lacks the financial and technological resources to stop cyber attacks, hackers, etc.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan supports the use of ICTs and ISPs to prevent cyber attacks and to strengthen national security for cyber crimes. Afghanistan advises that all countries spend a portion of their national bank to strengthen their cybersecurity as we can all stop cyber crime internationally as a global society, rather than as individual countries.
