The NCCS project is a joint initiative of Higher Education Commission (HEC) and Planning Commission. The Centre constitutes Research and Development (R&D) Labs in reputed universities of Pakistan which were shortlisted after the open call for proposals made by HEC in early 2018. After meticulous scrutiny in two rounds of evaluation, technical proposals from 11 universities of Pakistan were shortlisted. These universities were given the mandate to establish NCCS affiliated Labs in different specialized areas of cyber security under the secretariat of centre. It is honour for Air University that it is entrusted with the status of NCCS Secretariat in addition to the two affiliated labs in the domain of Cyber Crime Forensics and Smart Devices and Networks Security.
