The experts at the cyber moot “Sustainable Cyber Secure Pakistan Vision 2030” on Thursday discussed the global fast practices to achieve sustainable cyber security in the country.
The objectives of the conference were to engage all the relevant stakeholders (private/public) in the area of emerging trends, challenges and solutions in cyber security.
The four days (August 22-25) moot was organised by Pakistan Information Security Association (PISA), said a press release issue here. The event will be consisting of two pieces of training, an international conference and a cyber-drill.
The two days of cyber security training were on the most demand-driven topics including Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) and Digital Forensics. The training was conducted by highly professional international trainers who came from Malaysia.
The trainees include defence forces, the police department, FIA, banks, and other public and private sector organisations.
The global cyber security threat continues to evolve at a rapid pace, with a rising number of data breaches each year. All recent reports by research organisations reveal shocking data breaches of billions of people.
The banking sector, medical services, retailers, and public entities experienced the most breaches, with malicious criminals responsible for most incidents.
Some of these sectors are more appealing to cyber criminals because they collect financial and medical data, but all businesses that use networks can be targeted for customer data, corporate espionage, or customer attacks.
PISA is a not-for-profit international organization of information security professionals and practitioners and provides educational forums, publications, and peer interaction opportunities that enhance the knowledge, skill and professional growth of its members.
Cyber Secure Pakistan (CSP) is a movement by PISA Pakistan (supported by Security Experts (Pvt) Ltd.) to secure the country on cyber fronts for smooth functioning of the society and economy.
It is an open dialogue-building platform to bridge gaps between the state, civil society, policymakers, enablers, gurus and geeks. There were tech talks, focused panel discussions and many networking opportunities for everyone with the related stakes and interests in cyber-security.
The theme of the 8th edition of this year’s CSP conference was “Sustainable Cyber Secure Pakistan (CSP) Vision 2030”.
The theme was in the context of an extremely dynamic and volatile cyber environment and the requirement of state readiness in its response vis-a-vis the UN’s agenda of sustainable development goals.
The chief guest was Minister of States and Frontier Regions Muhammad Talha Mehmood who appreciated the goals of the conference.
