The first Pakistani National Cyber Security Academy has been established in Pakistan.

Dr. Arif Alvi, Pakistan's president, opened Pakistan's first National Cyber Security Academy at the PAF Complex in Islamabad to ensure the country's continued growth in cyber security. This year's inauguration event was held in conjunction with the 2nd annual International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS).

 

Air Chief Marshal Zaheer Ahmed Baber Sidhu, Chief of the Air Staff, Air Vice-Marshal Abbas Ghumman, Director General C4I PAF, and Air Marshal (Retired) Javaid Ahmed, Vice-Chancellor Air University, were among the luminaries who attended the conference.

 

An exponential threat to national security might be a result of this wave of cyber crimes, according to Dr. Arif Alvi. the Pakistan Air Force (PAF), Air University (AU), as well as the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) collaborated to launch Pakistan's first cyber-security academy, which President Asif Ali Zardari applauded.

 

Ultimately, the academy's major objective is to make sure that the future generation of cyber specialists, who can help protect the public and private sectors from looming cyber dangers, has the knowledge and tools they need to succeed. This encompasses the growth of cyber-awareness as well as the acquisition of new skills.

 

HEC Executive Director Dr. Shaista Sohail further claimed that the academic programme would be improved by upgrading to BS and Ph.D. levels. Cybersecurity should be included in the curriculum of all technical degrees in order to raise awareness of the necessity of cybersecurity expertise.
