FBI training FIA officers on cyber crime

Interior Minister Faisal Saleh Hayat said on Thursday that the US Federal Bureau of Investigation was training FIA officials in combating cyber crimes, including financial frauds. Speaking to journalists at a seminar on Cyber Security: Challenges and Solutions, held under the auspices of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Sindh’s IT department, he said besides hacking for fun and various kinds of crime, a major threat to Pakistan was cyber attacks on its official websites. He said Pakistan occupies an important position in the global security scenario and that many groups and nations opposing the country’s growing image were initiating such attacks. Referring to the Quetta massacre, the minister said a high-level inquiry was underway to investigate the incident and the involvement of a foreign hand could not be ruled out. Earlier, in his inaugural speech, Mr Hayat said the government was committed to transforming Pakistan into a modern, liberal, progressive and forward-looking state. He said all citizens must be free to exercise their legitimate rights, as envisaged by our founding fathers. Full Story
