Former Chairman of National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), Tariq Malik, has been named among the top 100 digital influencers in the global digital community. Tariq Malik, who is currently serving as a chief technical adviser of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), has been included in the list for the third consecutive year.
Others on the list include Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg, Apple’s Tim Cook, Microsoft’s Daniel Buchner and US Senator Ron Wynden.
The list has been prepared by One World Identity (OWI) — a New York-based independent identity research and strategy company focused on cyber security, digital commerce and risk management.
Recognizing influencers and leaders from across the globe, the list comprises names of entrepreneurs, business leaders, change makers, security gurus, privacy advocates and others.
The list of 100 was narrowed down by OWI’s staff from a large number of nominations submitted via Twitter, LinkedIn, and its website. The majority of trailblazers on the OWI 100 work in the technology industry, with others represented in government, banking and finance.
