Speakers at a five-day Hands-on Network Security training and workshop emphasized upon strengthening of national cyber security capabilities through development and well-coordinated mechanisms, implementation of security standards and regulations under a policy and legislative framework to mitigate cyber threats being faced by the country.
They said that Pakistan should have a secure, robust and continually improving nationwide digital ecosystem ensuring accountable confidentiality, integrity and availability of digital assets leading to socio-economic development and national security.
