About Cyber Secure Pakistan 2013

Pakistan Information Security Association (PISA) cordially invites you to Cyber Secure Pakistan ‘13.

CSP 2013

CSP 2013

In order to create awareness amongst the general public and the corporate sector about Information Security issues and evolve an environment of secure industrial and business  information transactions. PISA has come up with an exciting format to engage with its audience this year. The conference participants would experience and narrate their experiences as an in-depth exposure to information security issues and ongoing remedial strategies, all in all resulting in  bringing an era of positive change and maturity in our society and the end user.

Theme of CSP 2013: “Hackers & Threats”

With the increasing growth of Information Technology in Pakistan, it has become imperative to educate the masses about the misuse of Internet and how it can compromise their security.
From a common citizen to the vital government and industrial institutions, by digitizing all the data,
it’s become easier to manage but along with that it is also getting more vulnerable against Cyberattacks.
Last year at CSP’12, experts from the industry covered all the tracks to create awareness among
professionals. This year our theme for CSP ’13 is “Hackers and Threats”. The basic purpose and
motive behind this conference is to educate and alert the stakeholders of Pakistan against the ever
increasing threats of Cyber Crime.

Objectives of the Conference

  • Bridging the gap between local and global Information Security practices;
  • Educating about adapting new streams (tracks) of Information Security for bringing positive change in the IT industry
  • Improving our infrastructure according to the current immediacy of global threat
  • Highlight the hidden talent of professionals working in the back end to bring Pakistan back on the global talent map
  • Bring academia and industry closer to each other for bringing change and solving our collective problems

About IBA HR Summit 2013

IBA HR Summit 2013

IBA HR Summit 2013

A day-long conference that will provide the most desired platform to the academia, business professionals – from inspirational entrepreneurs to transformational leaders and students who aim to become well-rounded personnel in their respective career, to interact and exchange their experience and expertise.

Besides the tremendous success of the past two HR Summits held in 2011 and 2012 which was proved by the overwhelmingly welcoming response from business and academic world evenly, there are several other reasons why the student-members of IBA HR Club have decided to put in their time, efforts and precious material resources towards the third consecutive summit. The organizing team of HR SUMMIT 2013 highlights the following reasons which according to them are also the benefits which the participants of this summit are guaranteed:

  • To create an updated business world by exchange of knowledge capital.
  • The need for identifying the best business practices which will be found after an analytic discussion of the existing industry-wide practices.
  • To develop a profound understanding of the current HR challenges faced globally and identifying best possible way out.
  • The dire need for informal training for individuals to get them better career opportunities.

Numerous other implicit advantages of attending an international standard Human Resource Summit are well-understood, ranging from gaining exposure to the corporate world to network building.

The event is thus designed in such a fashion that it fulfils all the underlying objectives. Panel discussions, networking sessions, addresses from prominent CEOs, training sessions are some of the glaring events of the day.

Economy, Hiring Trends and Job Market in 2013

So, 2012 is over; Many of us switched jobs, got our first ones or kept searching for a dream job. Whatever the case may be, a sneak peek into “Hiring Trends and Job Market in 2013” will be helpful.

Much like last couple of years, economic slowdown will be dominant in 2013. Be it US or the Euro Zone, consumer spending is lowered compared to the numbers a decade ago. Decreasing demand in US and big economies of the EU has hit hard the manufacturing sector which still is one of the largest employment generating sectors in the world.

You might have heard or read “When the US sneezes the world catches cold” ever wondered what it really means? Here is what it really means; consumer spending in the US is the single most important driving factor for manufacturing and services industries in the EU and Asia. Low consumers spending in the US means less demand, resulting in job losses in EU and Asia.

During the last couple of decades, China and India have emerged as fastest growing economies in the world. Despite their dependence on the exports, their local consumer market provides both economies a cushion against global recession. Thanks to their large populations and a growing middle and upper middle class. Though decline in global exports of both the countries hurts their economies, the job market is not that vulnerable.

But what about Pakistan?

Heading towards an economic collapse, Pakistan needs serious measures to be taken to avoid an employment emergency. At an unemployment rate of around 5.7%, situation isn’t that bad compared to the global economic crisis. But that doesn’t indicate all well at all.

A decade of flawed policies has led Pakistan to the verge imploding. Though growing at around 3.5 percent; rampant corruption, low tax to GDP ratio, declining foreign exchange reserves and massive borrowings (both internal & external) make Pakistan’s economy vulnerable to a major setback.

For Job market, it means limited opportunities for workforce. Power crisis has proven to be the last nail in the coffin for Pakistan’s fragile economy. Trade imbalance makes it difficult for government to maintain a sustainable growth and curtail the unemployment rates.

Who will be hiring in 2013?

If economy is that bad, the big question is who will be hiring in 2013? Like in 2012, the growing sectors will be the services sector, IT & ITES, media and to some extent large scale manufacturing. Companies will be looking for cheap and skilled labour force to meet ever increasing challenges of quality and cost effectiveness. People looking for jobs will have to work for a lower wages due to a large number of jobseekers looking for limited job opportunities. Low income means less spending which doesn’t help economic growth rather, worsens the situation.

Is everything bad?

No, not really. When they say “it can’t get any worse” they actually are looking for ways to get it better. With election around the corner, one can hope for a better government. Some policy level decisions and corrective measures can fast turnaround the situation. And when I say so, I have reasons to believe so.

Pakistan is among one of the few nations to have a dynamic, cheap and young workforce. With half the population under the age of 25 years, rated among top four most intelligent nations (based on the provided resources), one of the largest pool of doctors, engineers and labour force, only a fool would say “its all bad”.

During last couple of years, a large number of entrepreneurs have entered the arena for good of their own selves as well as of the society. In new economies, not big businesses but entrepreneurs are the driving factor.
