Pakistan faces growing cyber security threats

ISLAMABAD - National Security Advisor, Nasser Khan Janjua has said that growing digitization of cyber space is a threat to defence and security.

He was addressing a seminar on the theme of "Cyber Secure Pakistan-Policy Framework" in Islamabad on Tuesday.

He said the whole sphere has been endangered and it is need of the hour to get out of the consumer market and venture into new dimensions.

Nasser Khan Janjua said due to our increasing alliance on the internet, cyber security policy is becoming the need of the hour.

He said that it is important for Pakistan to securitize the cyber space otherwise the communication, financial and conventional system can become targets.

He said that there is a dire need to create awareness that cyber security is a matter of national security.
