To Cleanse and Protect The Cyber Space of Digital Pakistan
It is ironic that despite having the world’s best cybersecurity and IT experts, Pakistan remains ill-equipped to deal with the ever rising threat of cyber attacks. Since 2011, hackers from different parts of the world continued to launch distributed denial of service (DDoS) and ransomware attacks on Pakistani websites and business corporates. They hacked websites belonging to the security forces and the federal government, defaced them and leaked private data of government and security officials — as documented by the local media including Tier3 Cyber Alert System.
By contrast, the Federal Investigation Agency — the country’s premier anti-cyber crime watchdog — can barely cope with such attacks, according to industry experts. “These attacks will keep on happening as we can’t do anything. We have no facilities or resource to trace the hackers.We need trained people to do the job efficiently,” an official, who advises the agency on legal issues, told me in a conversation last year. According to the official, even National Response Centre for Cyber Crime, an FIA division responsible for dealing with cyber crimes, can’t trace such attacks that are executed by hackers through proxies, such as TOR — free software that enables online anonymity and resist censorship.
