    Recent global security breaches have impacted millions of people and cost millions of dollars. It could not be clearer that cyber security impacts nations, Governments and businesses as a whole, not just IT departments anymore. The types of threats businesses and govt’s are facing are changing too. Hacking software is becoming more easily available and more powerful, increasing the impact that hackers can have on a businesses and countries. Cyber hackers are moving to more sophisticated agendas such as espionage, disinformation, market manipulation and disruption of infrastructure, on top of previous threats such as data theft, extortion and vandalism.

    All in all, cyber security is not just the responsibility of the IT people or IT department or IT ministry anymore. Developing a cyber secure environment requires input from governments, leaders, businesses and consumers. We need the Govt of Pakistan to call in Cyber security specialists and create a Cyber security policy that can keep the nation and its secrets and banking data safe. We need to provide a strict protocol for banks and Govt. institutions to follow. This can only be done if the Govt takes the initiative to implement a Cyber Strategy and forces its implementation.

    There are many business pages on facebook, online store that are selling bad products, most are a scam.
    We should have a policy for ecommerce websites in Pakistan.
    They all should be registered..

    The Cyber world is very big and massive.
    One cannot understand or imagine its depth.
    We need to secure the cyber environment of Pakistan step by step.
    First the Banking and financial sector, then the identity theft sector, and sector by sector we secure the cyber environment for Pakistan.
    We must have a Cyber Security Ministry. That’s the kind of attention that is needed.
