What are you currently doing today and projects you have related to Internet governance?
I am leading network and security team at PTA. I am also active team member ICT team responsible for Internet Technologies, Broadband, ICT Security issues. I have been involved in various ICT initiatives taken by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority, which includes awareness of latest technologies for the ICT industry of Pakistan in coordination with related national / international organizations like APNIC, SANOG, Proliferation of Broadband in Pakistan and Deployment of IPv6 and DNSSEC in Pakistan. Further, I was the contact person from PTA for the training conducted by APNIC on IPv6, IRM and DNSSEC, at Islamabad Pakistan, in 2012 and planning to hold another session by the end of 2013.

My ICT projects “SIM Information and Verification project using short code 668”, “SMS based survey System” and “Telecom footprint in Pakistan” got very much popularity in the country and it was appreciated at different levels and helped my organization to enhance quality of service. Like SIM information System project remained finalist during mbillionth award 2011 held at Delhi, India. The project was designed to provide end user’s SIM allocation by each mobile phone operator.
I was also a team member during the process of drafting recommendations to “Working Group on Telecommunication and network infrastructure” a sub-group of “Task Force on Information Technology” formed by Planning Commission Government of Pakistan.
In which ways the capacity building provided by Diplo has helped you and your community in Internet governance issues? (Question only for IGCBP Alumni)
Course is still in progress and will finish by October. I have found course very helpful and hope after the course I will be in better position to assist my top management related to ICT policy. Furthermore, I will be able to extend gained benefits towards my colleagues, university fellows, academia and sub-ordinates to enhance the awareness of ICT policy issues. As previously, I convinced APNIC and SANOG management to hold events in Pakistan to enhance knowledge for ICT industry in Pakistan, during the SANOG meeting at Colombo in 2011.
