Facebook agrees to ‘expedite’ information sharing with Pakistan

Facebook has agreed to expedite information sharing with Pakistani authorities in connection with investigations in cyber crime cases. A team from Facebook’s Asia Pacific headquarters visited the office of Director General Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Wajid Zia to discuss issues of cooperation and data sharing between FIA and Facebook. The two teams discussed mutual collaboration and cooperation in data sharing as well as cyber crime awareness among social media users in Pakistan.

The meeting also decided that the FIA would nominate focal persons from the Cyber Crime Wing in each province to liaise with the social media firm to investigate cybercrimes, especially against children and women.
