The National Cyber Security Policy has been approved by the Cabinet

According to Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry, the federal cabinet adopted the first-ever National Cyber Security Policy on Tuesday, as the government prepared to begin a comprehensive probe into the Pegasus espionage scandal.

At a post-meeting news conference, Chaudhry claimed a list of cyber security specialists was being compiled who would conduct a thorough investigation, particularly into India’s use of Israeli spyware to hack Prime Minister Imran Khan’s phone.

He went on to say that Pakistan would also share the report with the appropriate authorities. The communications minister told reporters, “We believe and hope that the United Nations would take action on that.”

The minister explained that the National Cyber Security Policy would be divided into two parts: cyber security and cyber offences.
