Authorities in Pakistan confirmed the news that many government departments came under a barrage of cyber-attacks recently, which were later confirmed to have been conducted by neighboring India. The attacks included the hacking of Mobile Phones as well as e-mail accounts of senior government officials.
This is no longer breaking news; this has become the norm of continued undeclared warfare between rivals in the world, financial or military. The power of the unseen cyber world rocked the US elections four years ago, causing billions of dollars’ worth of losses to many major conglomerates.
Advanced cybersecurity is the need of the hour; it helps identify, warn, and protect systems and organizations from such cyber-attacks. Pakistan’s leading cybersecurity company, AMSAT, provides a broad range of services and solutions to help mitigate, manage, and react to cyber events, whether they occur in the public or private domain.
“AMSAT has been warning about the scope and sophistication of these attacks for years, so we are not surprised,” said Col (R) Adeel Kazi, General Manager at AMSAT. “We are ready to assist all government and non-government entities in securing their critical infrastructure and information.”
“Pakistan needs to wake up to these threats very quickly and respond in a deliberative, long-term, and structured way. The problem won’t certainly be fixed overnight; it needs a sustained effort, so the sooner we start, the faster we get to the end goal: to achieve a secure and stable digital environment in Pakistan,” he added.
