June 15, 2022—Concave FORT, a Lakson Group Company, partnered up with the government of Gilgit Baltistan to make sure the digitization of their police workforce was done with cybersecurity measures in mind. Concave FORT mobilized its experts to train key workers in the newly digitized police force in cybersecurity best practices.
This was extremely important because having only been recently digitized, the police force of Gilgit Baltistan was accustomed to analogue data management and storing processes. While the new digitization process brings with itself promises of efficiency and progress, it also comes with a new host of cyber-threats. This was particularly concerning because of the nature of the police force which involves the movement of sensitive information across data channels. Concave FORT was more than happy to step in and make sure the best practices were being enforced and that key employees were sufficiently trained in them.
Mr. Zahid Ali Chief Information Security Officer Concave FORT met Mr. Tanveer Al Hassan Assistant Inspector General of Police Development and Information Technology on June 15, 2022 regarding the successful completion of the training where both of them handed out certificates of completion of the trainings to the employees of the Gilgit Baltistan Police Force.
Mr. Zahid Ali, CISO Concave FORT expressed, “This engagement has enabled us to incorporate key cybersecurity best practices within the police force of Gilgit Baltistan. With the lessons that trained officials take with them will not only be able to ensure a complete secure use of data but a more digitally smart and adept police force in general. We look forward to working with the government of Gilgit Baltistan in the future and we believe that the enthusiasm that they showed to take on new practices and technologies shows the passion and commitment that they hold for progress.”
