Authorities in Pakistan confirmed the news that many government departments came under a barrage of cyber-attacks, which were later confirmed coming from neighboring India. It included the hacking of Mobile Phones as well as email accounts of senior government officials.
This is no longer breaking news and has become the norm of continued undeclared warfare between rivals in the world, whether they are financial rivals or military ones. The power of the unseen internet rocked the US elections four years ago and caused billions of dollars’ worth of losses to many major conglomerates.
Advanced cybersecurity is the need of the hour to identify, warn, and protect systems and organizations from such cyber-attacks. Pakistan’s leading cybersecurity company, AMSAT, provides a deep set of services and solutions to help mitigate, manage, and react to cyber events, whether they be in the public or private domain.

So, the sooner we start the faster we get to an end goal of a secure and stable digital environment in Pakistan,” he added.
