Securing sensitive and important information from intruders is a tedious task in the 21 st century. In order to protect information different ciphering techniques has been used. Quantum Cryptography has taken a new path in the field of crypto systems where all the presently used crypto systems are classified as classical cryptography systems. Classical cryptography systems use mathematical formulas where quantum cryptography uses the principles of photon polarization and heisenberg uncertainty

Therefore, the need of starting extensive research on quantum cryptography for the south asian region to safeguard information from intruders has been the purpose of this study. Comparative study of the growth of the telecommunication sector in the south asian region and how quantum cryptography could assist in securing information has been discussedas results.In the end, details of the need to research on quantum cryptography in the south asian region to overcome future predicted cyber threats are also discussed.
