Pakistani minor declared youngest CISSP professional

LAHORE: Eight-year-old Muhammad Huzair Awan has become the youngest person to clear the Information Technology (IT) Security professional (CISSP) by securing 78 per cent in the exam.

Last year Huzair successfully cleared the Microsoft Certified IT Professional exam. “I am extremely happy to have cleared such a big exam,” Huzair told.

Huzair added that he decided to take IT security classes after terrorists had hacked the website of the Rawalpindi police. “I want to become a CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) in the future.”

Huzair said he wants to continue on this path and attain more education pertaining to the IT sector.
